Internal Information

Definition overview

1 Definition

Information should be classified as Internal when the unauthorised disclosure, alteration, or destruction of that Information could result in a moderate level of risk to the University. By default, all Information Assets that are not explicitly classified as Restricted Information or Public Information should be treated as Internal Information. A reasonable level of Security Controls should be applied to Internal Information.

Access to Internal Information must be requested from, and authorised by, the Information System Owner. Access to Internal Information may be authorised to groups of persons by their job classification or responsibilities (e.g. role-based access).

Internal Information is moderately sensitive in nature. Often Internal Information is used in making decisions, and therefore it is important this information remain timely and accurate. The risk for negative impact on the University should this information not be available when needed is moderate.
