Information Security

Information security is a shared responsibility.

Every member of the McMaster community has access to sensitive information such as research data, student records, financial data, or your own personal information. Because of that, we all have a role to play in protecting the information we access, as well as ensuring everyone’s privacy – including our own.

The Information Security Policy provides concrete procedures, guidelines, and standards that will help everyone identify sensitive information, and make informed decisions to protect it.
