Data Classification Policy

The Data Classification Policy is an effort to identify critical data on the Middlebury network, for security and compliance reasons,  as either Extremely Sensitive, Internal or Public. 


The links below will help to clarify key points of the policy and what it means for you as a member of the Middlebury Community.


Data Classification Policy

The purpose of the data classification policy is to define different classifications of data and to describe principles for access, use, and safeguards of data, based on classification.

The following guidelines apply to data either owned by Middlebury, or to data that the institution has an interest in protecting. The scope of this policy is not limited to the Middlebury network but to all data stored and used on any Middlebury campus, or by any Middlebury affiliate or partner, regardless of format.
