The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) & ECMNOW!

According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law that protects the privacy of student educational records, schools are permitted from sharing current or archived student records or personally identifiable information without written consent from the student or a parent. So what exactly does this mean for the more than 96,000 public schools and 2,600 accredited four-year universities and colleges across the country?

The Answer: Schools must efficiently store student records whilst guarding against unauthorized access. However, this is often easier said than done, right? Wrong! Enterprise Content Management (ECM) from ECMNOW! & Digitech Systems provides the security educational institutions need and so much more.

  1. Enhanced Security: ImageSilo® and PaperVision® Enterprise assist school administrators in proactively  guarding against unauthorized access.
  2. Document Management and Retrieval: ECMNOW!  enables administrators to retrieve records in seconds and to distribute documents with ease.
  3. Save Money: ECMNOW! technology simplfies disclosure documentation and saves money.

“When I sit down in conversation with other people in higher education, the concern over student records eventually is traced to FERPA. Nobody in the IT business wants to be the CIO of the university that gets written up in the New York Times because they had some breach of privacy.” – Jeff Schiller, New York Manager & Security Architect.
