Data Classification Standard of Treatment



All staff, students, faculty, vendors and contractors must safeguard Western University data. Accordingly all staff, students, faculty, vendors and contractors should be able to readily identify the data classification of the information resources they encounter, and are responsible for ensuring the minimum standards of treatment are met.  Each unit is responsible for assigning a Data Steward who will be responsible for classifying that unit’s data into the classifications as defined in the Data Classification Standard.
