Departmental File Storage


This category refers to storage that is managed and maintained by departmental IT groups. In many cases these environments have not been reviewed by IT Services, so adherence to University security policies and guidelines cannot be guaranteed.

A departmental staff administrator wants to store documentation related to administrative business in their area. The document may contain sensitive information, and storing it on a department server that does not conform to standard data security guidelines could put the data at risk of compromise.
