From elementary to post-secondary institutions, students and their parents expect schools to effectively and efficiently protect their personal information.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.
Any educational institution receiving public funds must adhere to the U.S. Department of Education’s FERPA mandates to develop adequate policies and procedures to protect information from improper release and breach.
Praetorian Secure understands school districts and colleges use or collect personally identifiable information (PII) for a variety of educational purposes, and ensures confidentiality and availability of their data assets are restricted to those with applicable access rights through the following services:
- Security Policy & FERPA/PII Compliance Programs
- Annual Risk Assessment(s)
- User Account Management
- Virus Protection
- System Monitoring & Mitigation
- Security Testing, Vulnerability Audits & Maintenance
- Software Patch Programs
- Disaster Recovery & Contingency Planning
An effective educational approach to IT security and compliance is to rely heavily upon a comprehensive risk management program, conduct routine risk assessments, and then fund as many protective measures as can be implemented.
In addition to taking protective measures for both internal and external educational networks, training is recommended by Praetorian Secure for all personnel who have access to systems, equipment and data storage.
