Confidential Data

Confidential Data and Collaboration

When sharing confidential data electronically (with those who are authorized) it is important to ensure it is secure. Email and Google Drive are not secure methods of electronic delivery, therefore, we strongly recommend that you use MyFiles@bc or the appropriate Departmental Server to store and share electronic documents.

Identity Finder

Boston College uses Identity Finder as a tool to aid in the process of finding and handling confidential data on faculty and staff computers.

Don't Use Google for BC Confidential Data

Information in Google Email and Drive is stored in the cloud, and does not have the additional layers of security in place for services hosted in the BC Data Center (ex. PeopleSoft Financials, Student Information System).
