We like to think of it as hazardous material. You don’t want to touch it. You must store it safely. And once it’s leaked, it’s impossible to put back. Unless your job duties require you to store information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers and other sensitive data on your computer, it’s best to delete it. If you must store it, it’s best to keep it on a secure file server or a mapped drive, rather than your local computer. If you are a data or resource owner, you must appropriately protect sensitive data from unauthorized interception, modification, or access during electronic transmission. For more information, please read our Transmission of Sensitive Data policy
