Discover which specific FERPA compliance requirements you can address with Netwrix

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99) is a U.S. federal privacy law that protects the confidentiality of student records and ensures that a parent or eligible student has the right to inspect and review education records, seek to have them amended, and have certain types of control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information (PII) from the records. FERPA applies to all educational agencies and institutions that receive federal funds from the U.S. Department of Education.
