Annual Data Inventory

Each of us has a critical role in protecting the security and privacy of information. As a general rule, unless law, policy, business or research needs require storage of restricted data, they should be eliminated. If data must be preserved, we must ensure they are properly secured.

What is restricted data?

You may find more information on definitions of restricted data on the Information Security and Privacy website. We ask that you review electronic devices under your control (including tablets, phones, and removable media) and remove or secure any files or records that contain restricted information. These data elements should not be stored in consumer cloud services.

Restricted Data Inventory

If you must store restricted data, electronically or on paper, please inform your Information Security Coordinator no later than Friday, May 4th. Your coordinator maintains an inventory of data resources to facilitate risk assessment and compliance with law and policy. With assistance from the OIT IT Security group, your Coordinator can help you determine the best way to protect your data.
