Centraleyes Adds the FERPA Data Privacy Standard to its Framework Library

Centraleyes is excited to announce the latest addition to the Centraleyes framework library, the FERPA Data Privacy Standard.

Centraleyes enables universities to take necessary actions to meet their FERPA requirements, in a simple and automated way with smart questionnaires and customized compliance scoring. The platform maps the FERPA standard back to its extensive control inventory, allowing to share and reference data across multiple frameworks in the platform, saving valuable time and money and generating more accurate results.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, also known as the Buckley Amendment, is a Federal privacy law that protects the privacy of student education records. Records can include transcripts, grades, course schedules, class lists, health records, financial records, discipline files, and more. FERPA laws encompass three types of information: educational information, personally-identifiable information (PII) and directory information.

The Act is relevant to any public or private elementary, secondary, or post-secondary school and any state or local education agency that receives federal funds under an applicable program of the US Department of Education.

FERPA compliance ensures that your institution protects the privacy of parents and students. Failing to comply with FERPA can cause serious consequences. A parent or eligible student (18+ years old) has the right to file a complaint regarding an alleged violation of his or her rights under FERPA. If the complaint gives reasonable cause to believe that a school has violated FERPA, an administrative investigation may be initiated into the allegation in accordance with procedures outlined in the FERPA regulations.

Academic institutions must be able to automate administrative procedures and maintain a comprehensive real-time view of all their regulatory requirements, including FERPA compliance, while equipping their teams with the right tools to prepare for all their privacy challenges.
