It is always critical to comply with FERPA and HIPAA regulations when handling LETU data. However it is particularly vital to be aware of these regulations when working away from the LETU campus to ensure that data does not end up unprotected on systems which LETU cannot proactively manage and secure.
The following is not an exhaustive guide to FERPA or HIPAA compliance - please consult your supervisor or area leadership for specific guidance in your department for FERPA and HIPAA compliance. If questions remain at this point please contact IT for assistance determining the best way for your department to securely handle data.
If you experience uncertainty about the proper way to secure data when working remotely, please limit remote access to Confidential data to LETU's Remote Desktop Services until you are comfortable your questions about how to handle Confidential data in other environments have been answered.

LETU's Remote Desktop services are the only method which should be used for access to desktop resources from outside LETU's campus. Typically Remote Desktop services are provided through our TS1 Remote Desktop solution. In some cases, secure access to other resources on campus is available through remote desktop upon request to IT.
LETU's Faculty/Staff Policy Handbook 6.1 Acceptable Use of Technology prohibits the use of remote access methods other than those directly supported by LETU in order to avoid the risk of unintended compromise of LETU technology resources through personal computing systems and technology.
If Remote Desktop services are not meeting your need for remote work or instruction, please contact your supervisor, and if needed IT for assistance with unmet needs.
