What classes of data may I use on public cloud computing platforms at IU?

Public cloud providers Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure are approved for use by Indiana University faculty and staff through central contracts. (Student accounts on these services are not covered.)

Prior to obtaining an account or developing using AWS or Azure at IU, you must read and accept the Acceptable Usage Agreement.

AWS and Azure are approved for data classified as Public or University-Internal. Use of these platforms to store, process, or transmit data that is classified as Restricted or Critical (including, but not limited to, health data regulated by HIPAA and payment card data) must be specifically approved by the Data Steward(s) or responsible office (e.g., the Office of the Treasurer for PCI data).

Important:
Although public cloud vendors apply their own security protocols, you are ultimately responsible for securely managing the data stored, processed, or transmitted by the services you build or use on the approved cloud platforms.

Review Protect IU's Use of Cloud Computing for risks and recommendations while using cloud computing through IU.
