It depends on the type of sensitive data you are working with. ITS has technology tools to ensure a secure connection from remote locations that are acceptable for working with most types of sensitive data. For information on Virtual Private Network (VPN) and other teleworking tools, visit the Technology Tools section of this site. Sensitive data in hard copy may require special safeguarding measures. For example, if your work is subject to a technology control plan or CUI safeguarding plan, you may not be able to work remotely without prior approval from the Office of Research Integrity and Assurance.
