Records and Information Management
The University has vast volumes of Records and Information in both physical paper format and electronic.
Working with the Information Governance Guardian networks, the Information Governance Office is responsible for managing records of information processing, providing information management training and awareness as well as assisting with the development of effective and efficient Information Systems and processes.
From a physical records and information point of view this includes a service to (a) securely archive information with our specialist 3rd party provider and/or (b) securely and confidentially shred paper through the provision of consoles or large uniquely labelled secure shredding bags. More information about disposal of confidential material is available here.
In terms of electronic records, we work with stakeholders within the University to provide help and guidance. We ensure that University information is shared and processed lawfully through the Information Governance Risk Review process which ultimately leads to the identification and application of appropriate technical, administrative and physical safeguards.
For more information about the University’s policy on the retention and disposition of records and data, please see the Records Retention Schedule.
