Now on Carmen: Updated Institutional Data Policy (IDP) Training

In the course of your work for Ohio State, you are given access to institutional data. As an institutional data user you must be aware of the responsibilities entrusted to you in preserving the security and confidentiality of this information.

The Institutional Data policy (IDP) specifies requirements for the protection of Ohio State’s data while preserving the university’s open, information-sharing culture. The IDP was revised in 2014, and Enterprise Security has incorporated those changes into the IDP training courses available in Carmen.

All institutional data users can self-register for the training in Carmen. The training will take about 20-30 minutes to complete.

The updated IDP Carmen course includes job aids to help you determine which of the four classifications of the institutional data you are working with and how you are permitted to store and use it. After you have completed this training, you will be able to:

  • Explain your responsibilities for accessing and handling institutional data
  • Identify the four classifications of institutional data
  • Describe how you are permitted to use each type of institutional data
  • Explain what you should do if you suspect the loss, unauthorized access, or exposure of institutional data

If you have any questions regarding IDP training, please contact Enterprise Security (
