FERPA, Title IX, HIPAA: Email, Text & Digital Records — Audit Your Current Practices & Procedures to Limit Your Legal Exposure P
Fear of violating FERPA, HIPAA and Title IX rests on the minds of many as administrators continue to move from paper to digital records. Administrators feel the responsibility to ensure that emails, texts and other electronic files are safeguarded and appropriately provided to your students. Knowing how such records fit into the regulatory scheme can present headaches for higher education administrators.
This webinar will address how to manage and maintain digital records, and how such records fit into the regulatory scheme. Emails and other digital records can be education records under FERPA; this webinar will explain how those records must be safeguarded or how access must be provided to students, who own their FERPA records. The webinar will also cover the applicability, if any, of HIPAA, and how emails, texts, and other digital records may be used in the Title IX context.
We will break down the applicability of digital records to FERPA, HIPAA and Title IX, so you’ll walk away with the confidence that you are restricting and allowing access in an appropriate fashion.
