The Data Governance Committees take direction and align their activities in support of all relevant UW Information Security and Privacy policies. These policies are published in the UW’s Administrative Policy Statement (APS) system. Relevant policies include:
- Information Security Controls and Operational Practices (APS 2.6)
- Information Security and Privacy Roles, Responsibilities, and Definitions (APS 2.4)
- Information Security and Privacy Incident Management Policy (APS 2.5)
UW Data Governance structures aim to create data management, access, and usage standards that support existing UW policies involving information security and retention. The UW Institutional Data Management Standard is in support of Security and Privacy Policies and defines foundational principles, roles and responsibilities that govern data management issues at the UW. Relevant standards include:
- Defined foundational principles, roles and responsibilities that govern data management issues at the UW.
- Created by the former Data Management Committees (2006-2014).
- Will be updated by the Data Governance Committees in 2020-2021.
Contact the Data Governance Committees at email@example.com for more information.
- Defines the limited circumstances when the University of Washington (UW) will collect and use Social Security Numbers (SSNs);
- Defines how the UW and its workforce members will store and distribute SSNs to maintain the confidentiality of the numbers; and
- Requires that the UW contractually require non-UW employees (including vendors) to adhere to this standard when given access to UW-collected SSNs.
Contact UW Privacy Office for more information.
