Data classification (information security)
Information of different types needs to be secured in different ways. An information classification scheme is required, whereby information is classified and a standard is declared on how to handle information according to its security classification
The purpose of the Data Classification Guidelines is to establish the rationale and guidance for a data classification scheme across Griffith University. This guideline applies to all information regardless of format and is aligned with the University’s Information Management Principles. It covers data, documents and content (hereafter referred to as information) stored, processed, and transmitted by either technology and communication systems or manual systems.
