Compliance & Regulations


What it is

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records, applying to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA regulations require such institutions to:

  • Provide students and their parents with access to their educational data
  • Adhere to a privacy policy with regards to releasing such data

Cisco Cloudlock Can Help

Cisco Cloudlock is the cloud security solution that helps customers achieve FERPA compliance by:

  • Finding all documents containing student Personally Identifiable Information (PII) such as social security numbers or student IDs in a cloud application’s domain
  • Providing ongoing monitoring and alerting upon such discoveries
  • Reviewing permission settings and correcting access rights
  • Enabling adoption of trusted Apps to maintain cloud platform usage

Cloudlock helps us find Social Security numbers and other Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that are placed in the domain. This is an essential compliance application for us.
