What is an education record?
"Education records" are records that are directly related to a student and that are maintained by an educational agency or institution or a party acting for or on behalf of the agency or institution.
Did you know?
The education sector was responsible for 884 million leaked records across the globe in 2020, making it the third most affected by data breaches.
Only the technology (3.3 billion) and healthcare sectors (1.2 billion) were more vulnerable to security incidents, according to data from company IT Governance, which reviewed more than 1,000 security incidents across the year.
This should cause huge concern for schools and other educational institutes because those records are mostly related to children.
Examples of educational records include:
grades / transcripts
exams, papers, theses, etc.
student email address
any personally identifiable information
