I did a presentation way back (maybe 2008) when I tried to only think of laws with long acronyms - I had, on a slide, 
HIPAA, FERPA, CALEA, PATRIOT ACT, GLBA, CAN-SPAM, SOX, ECPA, CFAA, DMCA, TEACH ACT, E-SIGN

Subject: [SECURITY] Federal laws applicable to Universities

I know that FERPA, HIPAA( if healthcare data) and maybe PCI are applicable to Universities on the US. But there is any 
other federal laws applicable or that Universities need to comply with?. Just working on fundamental laws for IT 
Compliance on Universities.

Will appreciate your comments.
