Considerations for Confidential Data

Encryption

Confidential data should be kept encrypted on whatever storage device is used.  This includes the computer hard drive and any external drives used with the data.

 

Object-Level Logging of Condential Data

If you do need to store the data on the computer, then object-level logging needs to be enabled for the folder(s) where confidential data is stored.

Here are some instructions regarding how to enable object-level logs for Windows computers.. https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc771070(v=ws.11).aspx.  (When selecting the group under #5 -- use group EVERYONE).

 

If someone tracks down how to enable object-level logging for Macs, please let me know and I will add the information here.
