Government institutions are taking these concepts quite seriously. The US Department of Education formed the Privacy Technical Assistance Center (PTAC) in response to more and more people demanding higher education and the rapid expansion of technology and data collection. Educational facilities gather a lot of sensitive information from students, so confidentiality is a top priority. There’s no question that companies suffer customer loss after data breaches, and schools are no different. According the the PTAC, breaches and misuse can be avoided by utilizing a “data governance plan”, which includes:
- Protection of sensitive data;
- Vulnerability assessment and risk management;
- Enforcement of legal, regulatory, contractual, and architectural compliance requirements;
- Identification of stakeholders, such as parents and administrators, their roles and responsibilities; and
- Access management
