Improper handling could result in privacy invasion or unauthorized access to information.
Protect information with special care, especially in regard to sensitive-data storage on SharePoint sites.
If you are the owner of a SharePoint website that contains restricted or critical data, please follow these data storage guidelines:
- Restrict access to authorized users. For internal university data, ensure information is locked behind the log-in screen. For more restrictive data, limit the information to authorized individuals.
- Keep information only as required, as the potential for unauthorized disclosure increases with the length of time you retain information. IU already maintains many records. Your data steward can tell you more.
- Dispose of sensitive data when no longer needed.
For more information, reach out to the University Information Privacy Office or call 812-855-UIPO.
