The higher education records management security playbook

Student records are one of the largest, most regularly accessed sources of information your college or university handles — and one of the most challenging to manage well.

Ongoing security breaches, paired with stringent federal regulations like the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), have made network and data security one of the top priorities for higher education IT directors. Add in the variety of your records, including human resources records for faculty and other staff, student records, health records, and various administrative documents — and this management and security challenge becomes even more daunting.

How can your college or university protect its most sensitive information?

Check out these successful records management examples as inspiration for your own security approach.
