Information Access & Protection Standard
The Information Access & Protection (IAP) Standard provides requirements for the proper handling of information at RIT.
The standard classifies information into four categories: Private, Confidential, Internal, and Public.
Private information is information that is confidential and which could be used for identity theft. Private information also has additional requirements associated with its protection (e.g., state and federal mandates). Examples include:
- Social Security Numbers (SSNs), Individual Taxpayer Identification Numbers (ITINs), or other national identification numbers
- Driver’s license numbers
- Financial account information (bank account numbers, checks, credit or debit card numbers), etc.
