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

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

Compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), a federal law designed to protect the privacy of student records, is an ongoing struggle for many educational institutions. These schools must safeguard student information from unauthorized access. They must prevent the unlawful sharing of current or archived student records. They notify parents and adult students annually of their rights under FERPA. And they must do all of this without interruption to their normal day-to-day activities.

Failure to comply with FERPA can jeopardizes federal funding.

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