Information security

Information used for the University's teaching, learning, research, commercial and administrative activities is an important asset which must be protected from threats which may result in significant financial and reputational damage.

This section provides guidance on how to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information and to provide assurance of legislative compliance.

It is the intention that existing policies, procedures and guidelines for information security will be reviewed against international standards such as ISO/IEC 27001 and, once approved, will be included in this section and other communications to staff.
