How is data protected? Data protection is the process of safeguarding important information from corruption, compromise or loss (). The security measures encrypt the genetic and personal information using strong SSL/TLS ciphers. Having the latest security software, web browser and operating system are the best defenses against viruses, malware and other online threats. Spam filters will weed out malware and phishing scams. What makes it sensitive? Sensitive data can be a number of things. The easiest way to think about it is to think of personal data you would not want to be shared with just anyone. There are several common pieces of sensitive data: Financial information – credit card numbers, bank account information, and social security numbers. Government information – any document that is classified as secret or top-secret, restricted, or can be considered a breach of confidentiality. Business information – accounting data, trade secrets, financial statements or accounts, and any sensitive information in business plans.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
