Storage Offerings

UNH offers storage solutions based on the type of data, size of files, and business purpose. In addition, storage options must be driven by how the data is classified in terms of security.  Data at all USNH institutions must be classified according to the USNH Data Classification Policy which establishes three (3) classification levels: 

Restricted* – institutional data protected by regulation, law, or policy

Sensitive – all institutional data not classified as public or restricted

Public – institutional data approved by the appropriate data steward for public distribution

* Although electronic protected health information (ePHI) protected by HIPAA is currently classified as Restricted, ePHI cannot be stored in UNH storage locations labeled Restricted Use.  Please contact Information Security Services for help.
