This report summarises the conclusions of a workshop organised by Janet CSIRT in March 2013 to discuss with invited participants how sensitive research and other information is protected in universities, and how existing best practice could be developed and expanded. We are very grateful to all those who contributed to the workshop and to this report.
The International Standards Organisation (ISO) maintains a number of different standards in the area of Information Security. Although the standards are not written to directly address the information security issues of research and education organisations they are nonetheless a useful source of information about good practice. External bodies concerned about information security (for example organisations sharing commercially sensitive or personal data, and regulators) often express requirements or questions in terms of the ISO standards.
