Cybersecurity and Data Protection

MTSU values the data privacy and protection of its students, Faculty, staff, and College administrators. The University's Information Technology Division (ITD) provides tools, training seminars, technology support, and helpful applications to provide the campus community with the most current cybersecurity protections and internet portability.  The electronic security of student educational records, protected health information, staff employment files, and other confidential information is a priority of the University.

Most recently, MTSU began preparing for compliance with the European Union (EU) Data Protection Law, known as the EU General Data Protection Regulation of 2016 (GDPR).  GDPR officially takes effect on May  25, 2018.  Planning is currently underway at MTSU to comply with GDPR's requirements.
