Harvard University is committed to protecting the information that is critical to teaching, research, and the University’s many varied activities, our business operation, and the communities we support, including students, faculty, staff members, and the public. These protections may be governed by legal, contractual, or University policy considerations.
Everyone at Harvard has a responsibility for proper handling and protection of confidential information as set out in the Policy Statements. These policies apply to the entire Harvard community including faculty, staff, and students. Each policy is supported by Requirements that describe what must be done to be in compliance. Specific implementation steps are described in the How-Tos that accompany the Requirements.
For questions about policy interpretation and application, or for assistance with implementation steps or to find out about information security services that are offered at HLS, contact the ITS Service Desk.
