UBC Info Security Policies & Standards
UBC has a legislated responsibility to safeguard any Personally Identifiable Information (PII) of its students and staff. UBC Policy #104 (“Acceptable Use and Security of UBC Electronic Information and Systems“) defines the responsibilities of Arts ISIT in maintaining and reinforcing the university’s Information Security Standards, as outlined by the Chief Information Officer. These security standards and their related resources have been reproduced below for your reference.
Two of our most important services include full-disc encryptions of your information and data wipes of any computers for reuse or disposal. Visit the links above for instructions on how to request these services from Arts ISIT.
See below for a full breakdown of security standards for administrators and employees, as well as a list of resources for upholding these standards from UBC IT.
