Information Security Policy
NDORMS operates with two core information security documents. These are a management policy and practical guidelines:
All new members of the department, including students and visitors, are now provided a face-to-face information security induction. The Information Governance Manager talks them through a short induction handout and sets follow-up tasks to ensure that security awareness is maintained and developed throughout the department.
The Big Health Data Research group deals with large volumes of sensitive data and has maintained NHS Information Governance Toolkit certification since 2015 to give assurance to data providers. It works within information governance policies for the whole department along with additional controls.
