IT and Cyber Security Policies, Standards and Regulations

The standards detail what the University expects everyone to do, how we all need to behave online and how we can help keep ourselves and the University safe from cyber threats. Most typical members of the University (including students) who are users of standard University IT Facilities will likely only need to read and comply with the first smaller group of standards. While it is not necessary for everyone to read and understand every standard we encourage you to review the standards that are relevant to your role or activities.


Please contact the IT Service Desk if you have any questions or would like support with regards to these standards.

  • System Access Control Standard
  • System Acquisition, Development and Maintenance Standard
