To understand how Richmans Investments infrastructure domain is affected by the “Internal Use Only” data classification you must first indentify exactly what our infrastructure domains main purpose is. The Infrastructure Domain defines the roles, policies, standards, and technologies that manage the communications and computing hardware infrastructure for Richman Investments distributed computing environment. Disciplines in this domain deal with the connection of the various hardware pieces throughout the company and throughout the world, as well as the various hardware and operating systems. Now that we have defined our Infrastructures Domains purpose we will talk a little about the systems that are affected by “Internal Use Only” standard.
