To meet applicable federal, state, regulatory and contractual requirements, we must work together to protect university data from theft, compromise, and inappropriate use. The Data Management Framework helps all of us assess the sensitivity levels of the data we work with. Subsequently, we can learn how to secure the data from such risks as unauthorized destruction, modification, disclosure, access, use, and removal.
UPDATES are a work-in-progress: Please be advised that guidance and links to other pages are being updated to reflect changes made to the recently updated REG 08.00.03 Data Management Regulation. If you need help understanding or implementing this regulation per the guidance provided here, please contact Security & Compliance by sending an email to OIT_ISRA@help.ncsu.edu.
