Chicago, IL: Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC), the largest and most diverse community college in Iowa, has selected OculusIT for GLBA, GDPR, DPIA and vulnerability assessment services.

Founded in 1966, Des Moines Area Community College educates around 64,000 students from 99 counties. It is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. The college recently selected OculusIT to help them identify their data privacy risks via thorough security assessments.

The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) requires organizations to explain their information-sharing practices to their students and staff, and to safeguard sensitive data. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), designed to harmonize data privacy laws across Europe, controls how organizations handle personal information about their students and faculty. Data Privacy Impact Assessments (DPIAs) are preliminary assessments that must be carried out before the GDPR processing takes place.

  • Threat assessment
  • Asset identification
