The UPMC Schools of Nursing takes the security of our students’ information very seriously. The Safeguards Rule (16 CFR Part 314) requires financial institutions under the Federal Trade Commission jurisdiction to have measures in place to keep student financial information secure. In addition to developing safeguards, (UPMC SON) is responsible for taking steps to ensure that affiliates and service providers safeguard customer information in their care. The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), requires the UPMC Schools of Nursing to develop, implement and maintain reasonable administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the security, confidentiality, and integrity of student financial information.
On an annual basis, the UPMC Schools of Nursing publish a Student Information Security Program. This program was designed to promote the security and confidentiality of student financial information, protecting systems against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such information and protecting against unauthorized access to or use of such information that could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any student.
