It is important for everyone to be aware of increasing risks relating to data security. 

No one knows their data better than its users and creators. You are the one who knows everything about the data you create, such as the information it contains, how it relates to the other information within UNSW, who should be accessing it, how and when. Also, good data management is fundamental to good research. 

The UNSW Data Governance team is helping all UNSW individuals and divisions in managing, protecting and governing the data held by UNSW. Every staff member is responsible for following the policies and procedures for managing data in a secure manner. You can review the policies and procedures here:
