Find the recommended storage option for your data
The creation of data associated with any activity at Flinders University brings with it a number of considerations and responsibilities to ensure its safe storage, controlled access (where required), and restoration in the event of loss.
Here we outline the key considerations for managing data as part of your work here at Flinders University.
The University, and its staff, have a responsibility to protect information they create.
Any information created, becomes a "record" and must be managed according to its sensitivity and value to the University to ensure it’s handled correctly. (Refer to: Records Management Policy)
The concept of "Information classification" then provides an easy way to assign sensitivity or value to a record (whether a document, IT system, book, photograph, etc) and is detailed in the University's Information Security Policy. It’s important to note that this policy requires all information assets be assigned a classification.
This classification, in turn, will impact the storage option you will be recommended.
Now that you’ve considered the information you’ll be creating, established a Data Management Plan (DMP), and identified the information’s classification, it’s time to consider the storage options.
The University currently has several options available for you right now, along with a road map to expand our offering as our needs grow and change.
