Data Storage

The University holds significant volumes of information, much of which is accessed and processed by staff, students and third parties on a regular basis. It is important that this information is handled correctly and that you are familiar with the information categories and controls policy available at:

http://www.lboro.ac.uk/services/registry/information-governance/policy3/

Ensuring appropriate management of data is critical as lost data can cost you, and the University, time and money.

The default cloud office collaboration platform for the University is Microsoft Office 365:

  • Access to OneDrive and Office 365 Groups
  • Cloud-based storage for easy sharing and collaboration
  • Office 365 should be used as the default secure solution for file storage

OneDrive for Business can be accessed via a web browser at http://onedrive.lboro.ac.uk.
