Orientation Workshop on Records Management and Data Privacy Act Overview

The JHCSC Records Management Office, led by Mrs. Jovey P. Medina, has taken a proactive stance to emphasize the importance of both records management and compliance with data privacy regulations. These aspects are essential for maintaining operational efficiency, meeting legal requirements, and safeguarding the confidential data of students, faculty, and staff. The office spearheaded an Orientation Workshop on Records Management and provided an Overview of the Data Privacy Act. This workshop took place on October 19, 2023, at the Conference Hall of JHCSC Pagadian Annex.

Mrs. Medina highlighted the significance of records management in ensuring the integrity of academic records, such as student transcripts, grades, and academic achievements. She emphasized that maintaining accurate and easily accessible records is pivotal for upholding the institution’s academic standards.

Mr. Kim C. Borja, JD, BOT Sec. Office Staff, emphasized the potential consequences of non-compliance with data privacy acts. He pointed out that failure to adhere to these regulations can result in legal issues and financial penalties. Adhering to these regulations significantly reduces the risk of legal disputes and ensures that the state college is safeguarded against potential liabilities arising from data mishandling or breaches.
