Data Classification: What Information and Data Should You Safeguard?

In today’s digital world, personal data is often stored online. And, of course, anything online can be hacked, stolen and leveraged to the rightful owner’s detriment. Unfortunately, that doesn’t just apply to your credit card information, but to your personal health data, financial information and any data collected on you as you navigate the internet. All this information needs to be protected.

As a CU employee, you may often encounter highly sensitive information pertaining to individual health data, personal bank information, University operations and more. Correctly classifying or labeling CU information helps determine the security requirements necessary to keep it safe. Information classified as Highly Confidential and Confidential must be protected from compromise, such as unauthorized or accidental access, use, modification, destruction or disclosure.

For these reasons, consider attending CU’s new data safety webinar from 4 – 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct.12. This webinar features a diverse panel of speakers — including experts in policy, law and technology — to help you understand all aspects of these data protection and data classification standards.
