Table of contents

The purpose of the information security procedures is to form a basis for the information security at Uppsala University, as well as provide an overall description of the security requirements imposed on all information processing at the university, both in normal operations and in case of any form of crisis.  

The procedures are based on the guidelines for security and safety at Uppsala University (UFV 2009/1929) and the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency’s (MSB) directive on the information security in governmental authorities (MSBFS 2020:6), the directive on security measures in information systems for governmental authorities (MSBFS 2020:7), as well as the directive on reporting IT incidents for governmental authorities (MSBFS 2020:8).
