In the fall of 2016, researchers were notified of an initiative between UBC and PHSA to map UBC’s, IMITS’ (VCH, PHC, PHSA “VPP”) and PHSA Corporate’s information security standards and policies (read story). The working group completed an analysis of 58 policies, standards, and their associated term definitions standards from the three organizations and are preparing to present findings and recommendations, which are both actionable and feasible, from the initiative to executive sponsors in early April.
Based on the guidance and feedback of executive sponsors, next steps arising from the initiative will be considered and completed in partnership between all organizations. Please email ISPM@bcgsc.ca to request further information about the initiative. Updates will be posted to this site once the final report has been reviewed.
