Information security

Information security concerns everything we do with the help of digital tools, but also how we handle information in analogue form. We all need to help safeguard our information security at the university.

Some risks with breaches in information security:

  • We may experience major delays in research and teaching
  • We risk erroneous research results
  • We risk fines due to violations of the law, for example of the Data Protection Regulation
  • We risk violations of the personal integrity of individuals
  • Research may miss out on funding and external collaborations
  • We risk damaging trust in the university

What to do if an information security incident or event occurs

An incident means that information or data

  • have become or are at risk of becoming available to unauthorized persons 
  • has been destroyed, lost, or is unavailable
  • has become incorrect or corrupt

Depending on what has happened, you should immediately report this to infos%C3%A4k [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se (infosäk[at]med[dot]lu[dot]se) or on Lund University's incident page, in Swedish (website for LU Support/Servicedesk).

If you are unsure whether an incident has occurred, contact informationssakerhet [at] lu [dot] se (informationssakerhet[at]lu[dot]se) for guidance or infos%C3%A4k [at] med [dot] lu [dot] se (infosäk[at]med[dot]lu[dot]se).
