Staying up-to-date with the mandatory Information Security and Data Protection and ensuring your laptops and devices, where used for University work, are secure is a great way to protect yourself and the University.

Researchers intending to use departmental or third-party IT systems or services to support research must assess the security risks associated with such usage at an early stage. This is particularly important when a data protection by design (DPIA) is required. The Information Security (InfoSec) team can provide a security review service if needed, contact the team via to make a request. Please note that some basic information is required to complete such a review. 

Some examples of useful policy information and guidance can be seen below, visit our Policy and 'I want to...' sections to find out more.
