UCL Information Security Policy
The Policy sets out the rules by which users of our systems must abide. The Policy applies to all computers in the College - those that are centrally managed, those that are located in departments, and even privately owned systems when connected to the College network. As well as defining what constitutes acceptable use, the Computing Regulations (supporting policy 2) indicate the consequences of breaking the rules. Since in very serious cases this can mean dismissal or criminal prosecution, it's important to be familiar with the entire Policy.
The full text of the Policy may be viewed here.
Many individuals and organisations seek to limit liability arising from their e-mail communications by the use of disclaimers. There is little case law in this area to indicate the validity of such attempts; current UCL policy is to discourage the use of e-mail disclaimers. UCL Human Resources suggest that where disclaimers are used they should appear at the top of messages to increase their visibility. A sample disclaimer may be viewed here.
Where computer systems have the facility to display so-called login banners - short texts shown when a user attempts to access the system - it is recommended that these are used to convey important information about UCL Policy. Sample banners suitable for use on UCL systems may be viewed here.
