NYU Drive is a document sharing and storage service offered as part of NYU Google Apps for Education. It allows clients to create, save, and share documents instantly. The service is available via NYUHome or directly at drive.nyu.edu.
NYU Drive is a Core App and part of Google Apps for Education. As a Core App, it is covered under the privacy contract between NYU and Google. NYU Drive is sufficiently secure to be used for private documents, such as tenure committee discussions, personal papers, class notes, and scholarly materials. It is especially easy to use NYU Drive to share documents and files with others; therefore, special care should be taken to ensure that you do not share documents more broadly than you intend.
Restricted data has specific security requirements for storage systems and should not be stored or transmitted through NYU Drive. Research data may have additional security requirements as well based on the grant, IRB or OSP, and such data should not be stored in NYU Drive unless those requirements are met. See NYU's Data Classification Policy for details. ITS has published Guidance for Privacy and Security in NYU Google Apps for Education to help clients better manage sensitive data in NYU Google Apps.
