MSD IT Services Security Policy
Users of Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) within the University are subject in the first instance to the Information, Communications and Technology Committee (ICTC) regulations with subsequent amendments and available for review at:
The University has recently published its Information Security Policy. It states the University's objectives for information security and will be implemented across the University starting in July 2012.
The ICTC regulations alone do not fully provide for all the needs of a security policy covering these services. This current document provides additional policies and guidelines which apply to MSD IT services and users of its services within the Medical Sciences Division. Effective security is a team effort, involving the participation and support of every University employee and affiliate who deals with information and/or information systems. It is the responsibility of every computer user to know these policies and guidelines, and to conduct their activities accordingly.
For some advice on how to create strong passwords and protect them, please see our guidelines.
