Ed Law 2-d, progress in data privacy and security

As of January 29th, 2020 Part 121 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education went into effect implementing New York State Education Law 2-d.
Ed Law 2-d provides guidance to educational agencies and their third-party contractors on ways to strengthen data privacy and security to protect student data and annual professional performance review data for teachers and principals. 

New York State Data Privacy and Security
  • Ed Law 2D  - Education Law § 2-d went into effect in April 2014.  The focus of the statute was to foster privacy and security of personally identifiable information (PII) of students and certain PII related to classroom teachers and principals.
  • Part 121 Amendment to Ed Law 2D - Although the proposed regulations largely restate the requirements of Education Law § 2-d, there are new elements, including the adoption by the New York State Education Department of a data security and privacy standard, as was required by the statute.  The Department will adopt the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity Version 1.1 (CSF or Framework)
