Shredding Services for the Education Industry
Industry-Specific Disposal Solutions for Physical and Digital Information
Whether you are part of one of the student committees, volunteer groups, teaching staff or administrative teams, being closely involved in the education industry, you are aware of the enormous amount of sensitive information that your institution holds in physical and digital form. This may include personal information, financial records, medical records, and assessments or progress reports of the students, as well as the faculty and staff members.
In the US, there are several state legislations and federal regulations such as FACTA that govern the schools, higher education institutions and their related service providers regarding the manner in which they should collect, use and protect the confidential student and faculty data. In fact, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) specifically protects the privacy of student education records. This federal law is applicable to all schools that receive funds under relevant programs of the U.S. Department of Education. Yet, recent reports indicate that successful data breaches in the education sector have increased by 103% between 2016 and 2017 alone. Overall, this sector accounts for 13% of the total hacks.
At TITAN Mobile Shredding, we understand how crucial it is for all of you in the education industry to keep a close eye on the sensitive data that you collect and maintain. As a professional shredding company, we can help you with the secure disposal of both, physical and digital information.
