IDHub & Education Industry Compliance

If your business operates in the education industry, two key regulations that govern data privacy in the United States and which you must comply with are the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). In this document, we will explore how IDHub helps adhere to FERPA and GLBA regulations.

FERPA: What is it?

A US law is known as FERPA safeguards the confidentiality of learners' academic data. It is applicable to all colleges and universities that accept government assistance. prior to disclosing any personally identifiable information (PII), schools are required by FERPA to get written agreement from students or their legal guardians. FERPA controls the acquisition, preservation, and exchange of education-related data.

GLBA: What is it?

A US law known as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) mandates that financial institutions preserve the confidentiality of their customers' monetary data. It applies to all financial institutions, including banks, credit unions, and insurance firms, that are involved in offering consumers financial goods and services.
