Shared Data Protection Officer

Protecting your school district’s confidential data is a business decision, not a technical solution. Federal and state requirements, such as Ed Law 2D, SHIELD ACT, and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cybersecurity Framework (NIST CSF) aim to mitigate cyber risks; however, the requirements are overwhelming for an organization to manage on its own.

Our comprehensive Shared Data Protection Officer (SDPO) service allows for a holistic management approach to managing the tasks associated with statutory and regulatory compliance and is supported by a team of senior administrators from NERIC, experienced in leading a data privacy initiative at an organization level.
