                         CLASSIFICATION OF DATA

The information belonging to the University of Texas at Dallas is an essential and vital
public resource that must be protected from unauthorized modification, deletion or
disclosure. Two classifications of information are defined which require special
protective precautions:

    Confidential information is information maintained by state agencies that is exempt
     from disclosure under the provisions of the Texas Open Records Act * or other state or
     federal law; and
    Sensitive information is information maintained by state agencies that requires
     special precautions to assure its accuracy and integrity. Examples of sensitive
     information are:
        Financial information. Failure to protect the integrity of financial information in
         state or university files could result in the state or university’s financial
         detriment, an individual’s unlawful financial benefit, denial of lawful benefits or
         other loss of money or resources.
        Operating information. Incomplete or inaccurate information concerning
         university operations may limit the ability of the agency to assure the integrity of
         its programs or may adversely affect the public’s health, welfare or safety.

As defined above, sensitive information may be either public or confidential and requires
a higher than normal assurance of accuracy and completeness. Likewise, confidential
information may also be considered sensitive, requiring special measures to ensure its
accuracy. Thus, the controlling factor for confidential information is dissemination,
while the controlling factor for sensitive information is that of integrity.

NOTE: Remember that the media on which information resides is not the deciding
factor for protection, i.e. information on paper is just as important as that in
computers.


* The Texas Open Records Act provides exemption from disclosure for the following
information :
    student records.
    constitutional and statutory rights.
    inter- and intra-agency memoranda.
    litigation .
    law enforcement.
    governmental purchasing and private competitive advantage.
