Administrative Data Security Policy


The Administrative Data Security Policy governs the handling, dissemination, and protection of Davidson College's administrative data. Administrative data includes employee data, student data, financial transaction data, and other data used to support the administrative functions of the college.

Electronic information at Davidson College is stored on central servers and on individual desktop computers. This networked environment poses significant risk to the security of information. Protecting this college resource is a shared responsibility between Information Technology Services (ITS) and the individual users of that information. Network security, including firewall technology, has been implemented to protect central servers and the campus network.


This policy seeks to outline processes and procedures for protecting such data and is intended for use by all individuals, staff, faculty, or employed students, given access to Davidson College's administrative data.


The college shall appropriately manage and secure all administrative data and applications.

Administration of Policy

The executive director of ITS shall oversee this policy and review it at least once every two years. Changes to this policy shall be made in accordance with the college's Policy on Policies.
