Information Governance Policies

Policy 6 - Information Sharing Policy


The University engages in a vast amount of work which requires the sharing of information between staff, staff and students and collaboration work between staff and external third parties. The aim of this Policy is to minimise the risk of loss, unauthorised disclosure, modification or removal of information maintained by the University whist seeking to maintain the open nature of the organisation.

This Policy provides guidance on how to safely share information between colleagues within the University and securely collaborate with external organisations outlining tools which can assist in the sharing of information.
