The Privacy Technical Assistance Center (PTAC)'s Help Desk is a place where stakeholders can ask questions related to matters of privacy, confidentiality, and security of education data. Additionally, State Education Agencies (SEAs), local educational agencies (LEAs), and postsecondary institutions can request, free of charge, on-site technical assistance to learn about best security practices for protecting their education data systems.
