Records are one of the most valuable
resources of the University. UBC produces and handles an extremely large volume
of both paper and electronic documents. Thus, records need to be properly organized and
accurately managed to maximize storage and be cost effective. At the same time,
the University has a responsibility to protect confidential information (which
includes personal information) from unauthorized viewing and use.

While you can find general information on
the Records Management main site above, below are other relevant resources
about information security and related legislative standards at UBC. Please
also consult with your unit/department administrator or the Office Manager
(Dean’s Office) for the latest information and further guidance.
The Policy requires individual units to ensure
that the appropriate security measures are observed for maintaining records
containing personal or other confidential information. Please be
reminded that all staff and faculty are required to complete the “Privacy and Information Security Training”
