The Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) is a federal law that requires financial institutions to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of customer information. While UNH is not a "financial institution" per se, as an institution of higher education, it is required to comply with this regulation. GLBA has two parts, one relating to privacy and one mandating security. For colleges and universities, FERPA (link to the FERPA section) addresses the privacy component of GLBA and UNH is not required to specifically address the privacy provisions in GLBA. The second part of GLBA called the Standards for Safeguarding Customer Information, requires UNH to adopt security controls to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of personally identifiable information provided for the purposes of financial aid and student loan servicing.
