Information Classification

McMaster University and its constituents have a lot of information to protect.

Whether it is personal information, personal health information, or intellectual property, we all share in the responsibility to keep it safe and private. It is up to you to determine how best to handle sensitive information. If your responsibilities at McMaster require that you access sensitive information, refer to the Information Classification Matrix for specific guidance, or contact IT Security if you are unsure. The Information Security Policy and the Information Classification Matrix help us make good decisions that protect individual privacy, intellectual property and the reputation of the University.
