New email policy prevents sharing of financial data, student records
Effective December 1, stricter policies will be put in place in Office 365 to help prevent the sharing and storing of sensitive and restricted data via UGAMail and OneDrive for Business.
This includes HIPAA ePHI data, credit card data, bank account information and sensitive student records.
If you try to email messages or share files with any of these data types, you may be prevented from doing so. You will see a notification in your email client or web browser. You can find more information about this change on the EITS website.
