Over the past several years, MIT designed several plans of action and put resources in place to address data protection and compliance issues.
|DIRT||The Data Incident Response Team (DIRT) - established in the Fall of 2007 - is designed to respond to and remediate data security incidents if they occur at MIT.|
|Merchant Services||MIT is implementing the Payment Card Industry's (PCI) Data Security Standards for MIT-affiliated merchants.|
|PII Program||The objective of this program (2007-2010): to identify and, where possible, reduce the places at MIT where Social Security numbers (SSN) are collected or recorded.|
|WISP||Effective March 1, 2010, MIT created a Written Information Security Program (WISP) in response to Massachusettes regulations.|
