EA-STD-034 Data Transfer Protocols

Architectural Classification

Technology \ Data \ Security

Standard Specification

Accurate and consistent data facilitate the day-to-day operation of almost all aspects of the university’s business.  It is important that the integrity of this data is maintained through secure and robust transmission protocols and methodologies.
