Responsible Use of University Data

Responsible Use of University Data.

Members of the University community and authorized contractors and affiliates interact with a wide spectrum of sensitive data for numerous reasons. Federal and state regulations require organizations and individuals to protect sensitive data. With computing resources so widely in use throughout Drew, the responsibility to safeguard computers and data extends to all members of the University community.

Drew University expects members of the University community to employ reasonable and appropriate administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the computer and data resources that they use and the sensitive data stored on these resources. Access to computer and data resources are privileges extended to members of the University community and are limited to authorized persons for approved purposes only.

This policy provides specific guidance to University employees in the protection of institutional data and supplements the existing Network User Agreement.
