Data storage in Adobe Creative Cloud

Individuals who work with institutional data are responsible for ensuring that those data are stored in approved locations. In addition, regulated data such as health information or personally identifiable information are often subject to federal and state laws (for example, HIPAA and FERPA) that require users to apply additional security measures.
