Data Loss Prevention
Encryption and data loss prevention (DLP) were implemented by the Division of IT to protect university data. For more information about these initiatives, please review our frequently asked questions below.
With DLP, when a user attempts to move sensitive data (such as Social Security numbers) on their workstations, i.e. print, copy, modify, or save files, a pop-up notification will appear on their screen. The user will then be prompted to provide a business-related justification. This will appear in monthly stewardship reports, assisting FIU’s divisions and schools in finding and eliminating older data sets that no longer serve a legitimate business purpose.
Note: To ensure that your sensitive data is stored in a secure location, you must ensure that your files are restricted to only be accessed by you. For assistance in restricting your files on SharePoint and OneDrive, please contact the Division of IT Support Center.
