Keeping your information safe

Protecting sensitive data

During your time here at the University, you may come across information of a confidential or sensitive nature through your study or research, so it’s important that you handle this information carefully at all stages.

Follow these simple steps to ensure you’re protecting this data.

  • When creating or receiving sensitive data: be sure you only share it with those who require or are authorised to access it. Always store this data in a secure location, such as an encrypted physical drive or on your University network drive.
  • When sharing and accessing data: always have the appropriate protections for your devices and storage. Laptops, tablets, phones and even USB sticks/thumb drives should be encrypted.
