The University of Tasmania Data Classification Framework facilitates the classification of data on a risk and consequence scale, informing data governance decision making.
Data Classification Framework
Data misuse would have little to no impact.
Data misuse unlikely to cause harm or have a negligible adverse impact.
Data breach or misuse may have a major adverse impact on the university or an external party. Release could be a regulatory offence.
Data breach or misuse expected to cause severe harm to the university or an external party. Release could be a regulatory or criminal offence.
The University’s Data Classification Framework was informed by the current regulatory landscape and developed in partnership with the ARDCs Research Data Management Framework for Institutions.
