Secure File Storage

Secure File Storage allows Georgia Southern faculty, staff, and departments to store Sensitive Data. Secure Storage drives are available for all University departments. Keep reading to learn more about using Secure File Storage.

Secure Storage Drives

The university provides a secure Google drive for each department to assist with storage needs for your Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) Data, and Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data.

Protected Health Information (PHI), which is specific to areas of the University, is managed separately from the other types of sensitive data. To discuss your PHI storage needs, please contact our MyTech Support staff, who will be happy to discuss storage options for you.

  1. Sign into the MyGS portal.

  3. In the left navigation menu, locate the “Shared Drives” option and click to expand.
