Confidentiality And Information Security Agreement

April 8, 2021

This agreement refers to the configuration of the computer. “Computer configuration” refers to the combination of hardware, software, operating system and settings used to configure each of these elements. These settings apply to all users of the system and can only be changed by higher permissions. Operating system settings, firewall settings, system time, and installed applications require a change in system configuration. Changing these issues can result in security risks or damage/deactivate a computer if it is not properly run. The submission of confidentiality agreements was developed and approved in 2014 by the Data Management Steering Committee, consisting of the Executive Vice President`s Office, the Office of General Counsel, the Office of Human Resources, the Office of Information Technology, the Office of Finance and Treasury, the Office of Audit and Compliance, the Dean of the Faculty and the Office of the Registrar. The model is provided as a guide for the use of departments to properly protect the confidential and confidential information of the university. The agreement is essential to ensure that we comply with federal and regional rules. We must preserve the integrity of the data and protect patient information, student information, personal records and other limited and confidential information. As it is essential that we understand and accept all of these conditions, it is necessary to review and sign the agreement at regular intervals for all staff. Staff includes teachers, collaborators, students, interns, volunteers and others who work for the UW School of Dentistry, whether or not the member is paid by the UW School of Dentistry. Digital communication has facilitated access to information, which has necessitated changes in our efforts to protect the privacy and confidentiality of patients, colleagues and students. As a user of UW and UW School of Dentistry Resources and Computer Data, you must verify and sign this agreement.

The agreement confirms your responsibility to comply with the guidelines of the UW and the UW School of Dentistry; Protect your accounts and passwords Do not change the computer configuration without official permission Patient and student information to be treated confidentially and to use UW resources only for authorized tasks. Although university staff are not required to sign the agreement, the Committee urges each department to consider adopting this agreement, if necessary, and to establish an internal process in which staff can certify it both on hiring and on an annual basis. If this agreement does not exactly meet the specific needs of the departments, directors should discuss the changes with the Office of General Counsel. This agreement refers to the guidelines of the UW and the UW School of Dentistry.
