As part of its ongoing efforts to ensure information security, UAB has updated its “Data Protection and Security Policy.”

Managing and protecting data are responsibilities of all members of the UAB community –faculty, staff, students, visitors, schools, departments, affiliates and/or other similar entities, including employees of contracted or outsourced non-UAB entities. Because availability of data is critical to conducting business, all parties should learn to protect their individual data and data under their control or use by viewing the online UAB General Data Security training program. They also should periodically review all applicable data security, confidentiality and acceptable use policies.

The new “Data Protection and Security Policy” can be found here .

Also, a training course has been developed and is accessible via the Courses & Training tab of BlazerNET ( ). The course, “Security Training – Data Security Training 2007 – Security Awareness for all Computer Users,” can be found in the Training and Requirements Dashboard channel.
