Public cloud-based storage

The College does not currently have a policy regarding the use of public cloud‑based storage services such as Dropbox, iCloud, Evernote, and Google Drive for the storage of College data.

However, as a member of the campus community, you are responsible for the security and protection of the electronic information resources you store outside of the College over which you have control, as you are the data owner as per the IT2 Policy.
