Information Protection @ MIT
Protecting Information is Our Responsibility
Improper disclosure of information that is considered sensitive data, can damage the image and reputation of the Institute, cause financial loss and embarrassment to students, faculty, and staff, and incur legal obligations and financial costs related to notifying the individuals affected by the disclosure.
It is in everyone's interest to ensure that the Institute's sensitive data is appropriately protected. It is also everyone's responsibility to safeguard such data.
This site covers:
- information to help the MIT community protect the data the Institute handles during its day-to-day operations; and
- how individuals can protect their own personal data.
