Comment on: FERPA Challenges to Consider | Origin: CM141 | originally posted by CM Chair

I was familiar with HIPAA and the USA Patriot Act, but this section introduced me to the Solomon Amendment, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, and SEVIS.  It makes sense that under the Patriot Act any helpful information must be released when investigating a terrorist act. This module brought to light that there is a lot of overlap on protecting an individual’s privacy but there is also the potential for many exceptions depending on the agency and the circumstance.  In other words, keeping up with FERPA and any exceptions is important.
