What is a FERPA Audit?

Are you a service provider to educational institutions? Are you an educational institution or agency that receives federal funding? The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a United States federal law that governs the access and privacy of educational information and records. The educational records that a covered entity or business associate creates, receives, maintains, or transmits must be protected against reasonably anticipated threats, hazards, and impermissible uses and/or disclosures. FERPA compliance protects the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of educational records.FERPA Audit
