Baker Tilly and ACUA are pleased to offer our upcoming webinar: Compliance Potpourri! Three Topics: State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement, Federal Cybersecurity Regulations, and Compliance Programs

In this Baker Tilly and ACUA webinar, a panel of experts will discuss several compliance related topics to provide key updates related to frequently asked compliance topics for a “compliance potpourri” overview. This webinar will provide helpful insights on the following topics:

State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA)

  • SARA is voluntary for states and institutions, however, it provides a framework for institutions with distance learning programs to become compliant with Department of Education regulations to register in all states where the distance learning programs have students and alleviate institutions from having to register in each state individually
  • Panelist will provide an overview of SARA and key challenges, as well as steps and tips to be compliant

Update on Federal Cybersecurity Requirements

  • Key compliance areas that govern cybersecurity safeguards including Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) rule 202.252-7012 for protecting Defense Department data related to contracts and grants and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) for safeguarding student data related to student financial aid programs
  • Panelist will discuss DFARS and GLBA requirements for higher education institutions
