General information

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.

The Office is responsible for the development of an institutional Information Security strategy and the formulation, enforcement and maintenance of the associated policies, processes and procedures.

Working closely with experts in the Records Management Office and IT Services, the Office is responsible for ensuring that guidance is available on how to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information and to provide assurance of legislative compliance.
