Challenges in the Education Industry

Education has become the fifth most targeted industry for data breaches. They put students and employees alike in dangerous positions that can cost the school thousands of dollars. However, criminals mostly target student files since most, if not all, have no credit history. The Government Accountability Office found that school districts can lose around $50,000 to $1 million after a breach. 

In addition, laws such as FERPA and the PPRA, as well as any state regulations, govern student privacy. With a FERPA violation, schools can lose federal funding and individual employees can be fined up to $500.

Secure data destruction and electronics recycling services protect your students’ and employees’ information and keep you in compliance with state and federal regulations like FERPA. Selling or donating your school’s old electronic devices puts them at risk of getting into the wrong hands. In addition, you will be helping your school reduce its carbon footprint with responsible recycling.
