Storing Sensitive Data

Storing sensitive data outside of university approved applications, locally on computers, mobile devices, or portable media is prohibited without prior approval. Our office is here to help with any questions you might have regarding a current process or if you have a new request to store sensitive data. Please contact us using the information in the footer.

Below is a quick reference guide of our primary departmental applications and the type of data that is approved for storage.
