5 Key Ways Your Electronic Data May Be at Risk
Titus, Aaron
Chronicle of Higher Education, v55 n9 pA35 Oct 2008
This article describes five organizational policies and behavior that put personal information in jeopardy. These are: (1) Inadequate security for old data; (2) Shadow systems and unregulated servers; (3) Unsophisticated privacy policies; (4) Improper use of Social Security numbers; and (5) Unsanitized old hard drives. Although the academic environment can seem at odds with information security, the appropriate practices and procedures can effectively balance information freedom and personal privacy.
