IT policies inform and direct the UB community, both its consumers and IT stewards, about UB's IT systems and access to technology and data. These policies prescribe the rules to which we are held accountable as individual members of the UB community.

  • Handling Restricted Data at UB
    Personally identifiable information (PII), restricted data, and private data range from Social Security Numbers to credit card numbers, dates of birth, passwords, medical records and passport numbers. Storing this information on personal or university-owned devices leaves it at risk of being stolen. Email is not secure and should never be used to transmit this type of data. The information below will help you learn how to minimize that risk and protect the students, the university and yourself.
