Heads of department

Heads of departments, divisions, or faculty board chairs are responsible for effectively implementing the University’s information security policy, and supporting standards and procedures.

This requires a local policy framework, which covers:

  • Defining and classifying information
  • Compliance with the University’s baseline controls security self-assessments (BCSA)
  • Managing internal and third-party information security risk
  • Information Security and Data Protection training for staff and students, and incident reporting
