    Data Privacy and Security
  • Data Privacy and Security Service (DPSS)

    The Data Privacy and Security Service (DPSS) formerly known as the Regional Data Privacy Office (RDPO) has been integrated with the RIC One initiative – 12 Regional Information Centers working together as one. The collaboration with other RICs provides more resources and enhances the offerings of the service. The Data Privacy and Security Service supports districts’ compliance with New York State’s Common Core Reform Act, Education Law 2-D and the Parents’ Bill of Rights, and provides resources to confront the increasing threats to district data and security. Specifically, the Data Privacy and Security Service focuses on three important questions related to district data:

    Where is your district data?
    Who is responsible for data in your district?
    Do those responsible for data know what to do and what not to do?

Software Inventory Tool

This tool enables districts to compile a list of their software inventory as well as links to third-party vendor’s software Privacy Policies and Notices thus enabling districts to comply with provisions of the New York State’s Parents’ Bill of Rights. Over 800 products are currently included in the database, and districts may submit requests for additional products.

Districts still retain responsibility to review vendor contracts.
