Effective March 1 and in compliance with Massachusetts regulations, MIT will have a new written information security program ("WISP"), with a focus on personal information which, if lost or stolen, will require MIT to notify the impact individuals ("PIRN"). In addition, there are other laws and regulations regarding handling a range of sensitive information. This is a non-technical session that discusses the context for data protection, what needs to be protected and why, the responsibilities for anyone handling personal information, as well as recommendations for securely handling, storing and destroying both electronic and paper records. Presentation and handouts will be available at http://web.mit.edu/infoprotect/resources.html. (This is an updated version of the 2009 IAP session)
