Data Classification Standards

Community colleges collect, compile, store, and manipulate data from a variety of sources. In order to apply the appropriate security protocols for safeguarding the data, the college must first classify the data into one of three levels: (1) confidential, (2) internal use, and (3) general. This document describes the three levels of data classification that California community college districts must adopt regarding the level of security placed on the particular types of information assets.
