    Indiana University’s Information Governance Policy

    Information represents a valuable asset that is critical to the operation of the university. This document applies to all individuals encountering university information, regardless of the user’s role or affiliation.

    Information represents a valuable asset that is critical to the operation of the
    university. The value of information as an institutional resource is increased through
    its widespread and appropriate use, and its value is diminished through misuse,
    misinterpretation, or unnecessary restrictions on its access.

    In addition, various legal, regulatory, and contractual terms require the university
    to document and employ reasonable safeguards to protect information. Therefore
    principles of information management must be articulated and applied uniformly to
    maintain and increase the value and to promote the confidentiality, availability, and
    integrity of the information while promoting its widespread and appropriate use.

    This document, provided by Indiana University, applies to all individuals
    encountering university information, regardless of the user’s role or affiliation. It
    does not extend to the special governance requirements that may be necessary for
    certain information types such as research information, intellectual property, health
    information, etc. It also does not apply to personal data that may reside on university
    information technology resources as a consequence of incidental personal use of those
    resources.
