I have a large collection of sensitive data (social security numbers, clinical information on patients [HIPAA], student grades [FERPA], etc.). Is it safe to have this data backed-up with Mozy?

Mozy is considered to fall within compliance of HIPAA and FERPA regulations. While it is best to maintain a minimum set of protected data on your computer it will not breach compliance to have it backed-up as part of our Mozy enrollment. There are certain types of data that would be best not have stored on your computer in general and it would be best to remove these types of data if you do have them: social security numbers, credit card numbers (personal or University cards), and other types of identifiable financial information.
