At Penn it is important to protect many types of information, sometimes because of regulatory requirements and sometimes because of the personal nature of the information itself. Student records, health information, credit card information, personal financial information, Social Security numbers and personnel records are among the kinds of data that need to be protected by Penn faculty, staff and other constituents.
In our complex environment it is difficult to be aware of all the requirements that apply, and all the tools that are available to help Penn and its constituents protect information. Recognizing this, Information Systems and Computing and the Office of Audit, Compliance and Privacy have developed a Resources Page that sets out local and central sources of assistance in this area. In addition, the Page provides links to information on specific privacy and security topics. You are invited to view the new Resources Page at www.upenn.edu/privacy.
