Data Storage Rules

One of my colleagues sent me a link to a great page on Standford’s website defining their data storage rules. With so many processes moving from paper to online it’s important to make sure users know how and when they can collect certain information. I’ve experienced quite a few staff members in departments collecting social security numbers online using non-secure webpages and data being stored in non-encrypted databases.

So pages like this are needed now more than ever, especially as we see more and more data breaches.
