Business, academic, and research data are subject to the university’s Data Classification Policy which defines four classes of data with respect to risk: High, Moderate, Low, and Minimal. It is important that data are properly classified and only stored on appropriate services.
If you work with High, Moderate or Low Risk data, you are responsible for using an approved storage service for the class of data you are working with. (If the data files fall into the Minimal Risk class, e.g., general business docs, then you can choose any of the available storage options.)
Data Stewards are responsible for assigning data classifications to particular categories of data. If you are unsure of the the correct storage service/location for the data you are working with, you should always ask the appropriate Data Steward.
