Protecting Data

Institutional information is information that provides critical support for the operation and mission of Ithaca College and is owned by the college. It is expected that institutional information will, in many cases, be shared across business units within Ithaca College and often with outside entities. Institutional information is essential and its confidentiality, integrity, and availability must be ensured to comply with legal, regulatory, and administrative requirements.

In general, effort should be taken to secure data both at rest and in motion particularly if that data contains personal, compliant information about individuals. DIIS is developing processes and recommendations for securing this type of data.
