It is your responsibility to protect the security of personal information and Imperial College London data, devices, networks and systems that you access, share and use. You can be expelled or lose your job because of failing to protect information or abusing systems and there can even be legal repercussions. 

Imperial has Information Systems Security Policies, so make sure you are familiar with them. While these documents refer to all aspects of information management, the main aim is to set out guidance on information protection. Each department or division also has a local Data Protection Coordinator, who is your first point of contact for all of your data protection queries.

The best way to protect important information is to ensure you have a strong password and then use applications such as multi-factor authentication when logging in to our services.
