University Information Security Policy and implementation guidance

At the University of Oxford every individual plays a role in maintaining good information security. All of which is made possible by following the policy and guidance information, which is relevant to all areas of work across the collegiate University.

Within each of the sections below you'll find:

  • What you are responsible for under University policy
  • What needs to happen for you to meet those responsibilities
  • Practical guidance for IT and other staff on how to implement the policy.

Overall accountability for information security is the responsibility of each head of division, head of department, or faculty board chair. The below guidance will help support management teams and all members of the University to meet their commitment to information security, as presented in the information security and data protection training.
