The ITS Information and Infrastructure Assurance (IIA) team performed an analysis of the Google Apps for Education environment and found it to be secure enough to maintain the university's sensitive data. However, due to some regulatory and contractual requirements, some sensitive regulated data cannot be collected, processed or stored in Google. The university's Sensitive Regulated Data Standard provides additional information regarding the permitted and restricted use of these types of data.
Remember, unless there is a specific regulation that prevents data from being maintained in Google, university-owned, sensitive data may be maintained in the university's Google environment.
Let firstname.lastname@example.org know if you collect, process, or store sensitive regulated data. Sensitive regulated data includes data that is covered by the following laws, regulations or standards:
NOTE: Data defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is also considered sensitive regulated data, however, there are no restrictions on the use of FERPA data (such as student grades) in the Google Core Services. Do not report this to the project team if this will be the extent of your FERPA data use.
For more information on, or examples of, sensitive regulated data, review "Sensitive Regulated Data Explained". Visit IIA's SafeComputing Google privacy and security webpage for more information. If you have questions about sensitive regulated data or privacy or security regulations, please contact IIA.Inform@umich.edu.
