The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal regulation that protects the privacy of student education records. As a provider of cyber security and managed IT services, WOM is dedicated to helping organizations comply with FERPA standards.
FERPA applies to educational institutions that receive federal funding, including elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, and vocational schools. The act requires educational institutions to explain their information-sharing practices to students and parents and to protect the confidentiality of student education records.
FERPA compliance involves implementing strict security measures to protect student education records and regularly reviewing and updating these measures to ensure that sensitive information remains secure. Organizations that fail to comply with FERPA standards can face significant financial penalties and legal action.
At WOM, we understand the importance of protecting student education records and the challenges of complying with FERPA standards. Our team of experts has extensive experience helping educational institutions implement effective security measures and maintain FERPA compliance.
