All of us have data files we work with every day, and many of us store this on our hard drives, USB drives, or a portable hard drive and sometimes on our personal devices. However, there is a better, more secure place to store them – your U drive.
Some of your data is highly confidential or at least sensitive, and the College has a new policy to ensure that college data is being accessed, stored and transmitted securely by July 1, 2016. Data Classification
Your U drive meets all of the security requirements in this policy. So, to ensure that you are safely securing your data files, you need to move all college files to your U drive.
Information Resources provides a network drive (U drive) to each faculty and staff member for storing files. The contents of this network drive are centrally backed up by Information Resources nightly.
