Data Classification and Handling
Northern Arizona University owns or controls, and acts as custodian for, a broad array of information, including highly sensitive information protected by law. Because the unauthorized release of sensitive information can inflict substantial harm, maintaining the integrity of this data and the information systems where it is stored is, therefore, a fundamental obligation. This policy establishes a data classification structure and data handling protocols in support of this crucial task. All members and units of the University community that interact with sensitive data must comply with the requirements of this policy.
