The secure processing and management of information and data, personal and non-personal, underpin the University’s activities and are essential to its teaching, research and administrative functions.
It is essential that all members of the University, staff and students, play their part in safeguarding the availability, integrity, confidentiality and authenticity of the information they hold or access. The misappropriation of University information not only has the potential to cause reputation damage and disruption to the University’s business but may also expose the organisation to the risk of legal sanctions. Additionally and importantly the loss or inadvertent disclosure of personal information can cause a significant amount of distress to the people whose information is affected.
The University’s Information Security Policy provides a framework for the management of information security throughout the University.
There is a range of support and guidance available for staff and students from the IT Service Desk including the following:
Accounts, Passwords & Security
All staff and students should ensure they are familiar with the IT Policies
