Ohio State University email gaffe creates a FERPA breach

An email gaffe due to not using bcc: instead of cc: or TO:  revealed almost 400 Ohio State University students’ disability status to other students.  Read the story on The Lantern.

Note that this is a FERPA issue, and there really is no requirement for breach notification to those impacted, but the unintended disclosure needs to be noted in their education records/file.
