The University's breach notification procedures are in place to ensure that University community members and stakeholders are informed when there is a breach in the security of confidential or personally identifiable information.
Following the discovery of an information security breach or FERPA violation in which there is a likelihood that confidential or personally identifiable information has been viewed or taken without authorization, the following measures will be taken.
Information Security Breach
The Information Technology Office will notify any and all parties potentially affected by the breach. The IT Office will take any reasonable and necessary measures to correct the breach as soon as is feasibly possible.
If the breach is found to be due to criminal activity, a report will be filed with the appropriate law enforcement agency and with the Office of Student Affairs. This activity will be recorded in the annual crime report.
The Registrar is the FERPA officer at SCU. Any possible FERPA violations should be reported to the Office of the Registrar with a detailed description of the violation and the steps taken to rectify the unauthorized disclosure. The student's right to file a FERPA complaint is communicated annually by email, in the student handbook and in academic catalogs.
