Within the University of Strathclyde the importance of information as a corporate asset is well recognised. For this reason the University has charged the Digital Campus Sub Committee of the Information Strategy Committee with developing and implementing an Information Security Policy with the following objectives.
Improving the operation of the Institution by ensuring that information is available to the appropriate individuals when and where it is needed; integrity of information is maintained and that appropriate levels of confidentially are maintained.
- Reducing the risk to the Institution due to poor information management
- Ensure compliance with the Institutions’ legal and regulatory responsibilities
- Improving the understanding of all relevant parties of their information security and information management responsibilities.
The principles of this policy are:
- To ensure that the University complies with all legal requirements
- To ensure the availability, confidentiality and integrity of all information held by the University
- Having a risk aware approach that reduces any unacceptable risks
- To ensure that individuals (staff, students and other people managing information within the University understand that they have personal responsibilities for ensuring Information Security
