Safeguarding the Data and Your Compliance Program – USED and GLBA


Significant revisions to the Federal Trade Commission’s GLBA Safeguards Rule become effective in June of this year. For any higher education institution receiving Federal Student Aid, this will impose significant new requirements for the protection of personal information. This issue is squarely on the radar of the Department of Education and USED has released guidance relating to compliance and audits for institutions. Join the Higher Education and Cybersecurity practices from Thompson Coburn to discuss the increased requirements in the Safeguards Rule, the USED guidance, the posture of the FTC, and how the new requirements may be enforced.
