How can I improve the way I use information?

  • Lock your computer when you are away from your desk
  • Save all data on the secure University drives (N or U)
  • Collaborate and share documents in SharePoint or OneDrive
  • If working at home, link into the University drive via 365
  • Use an encrypted laptop and make sure your USB stick is also encrypted
  • Manage research data in accordance with your grants ethics approved data management plans, including GDPR compliant privacy notices for data collection
  • Scan and save paper information – then securely dispose of the paper versions
  • Understand the retention rules for data you hold
  • Gradually go through all your old data and delete/save securely as appropriate
