DET InfoSafe Program
All school and corporate staff must take reasonable steps to ensure that personal and health information they create, handle or have responsibility for is kept secure and protected from misuse and loss, and from unauthorised access, modification, disclosure or destruction.
The DET InfoSafe Program has been established as part of the Department’s commitment to ensuring that the information it holds is managed and shared sensitively and securely to protect staff, students and their families.
The DET InfoSafe Program will implement a number of privacy and information security initiatives to lift both school and corporate staff capabilities.
Information and communication technology (ICT) security policies
- sets out the Department’s information security requirements for schools
- provides guidance on identifying and reporting ICT security incidents
Good records management practices are vital for keeping personal information secure.
School procurement of ICT systems
When schools procure ICT applications and systems, they need to ensure compliance with a number of legislative obligations, including privacy, data protection, records management and accessibility. To support schools in doing this, the Supplier Compliance process has been established to evaluate ICT suppliers.
