Meet Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Data Privacy Requirements

The amount of student data stored by educational institutions is exponentially expanding.  Colleges and universities who fall under the FERPA regulations must protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII), such as name, birthdate, etc., as well as:

- Student name
- Student ID number
- Family member names
- Place of birth
- Mother's maiden name
- Student educational records
- Immunization records
- Health records
- Individuals with Disabilities (IDEA) records
- Attendance

Townsend Security can help these colleges and universities protect student data with NIST-validated AES encryption and FIPS 140-2 compliant encryption key management.
