Many systems are built as servers by faculty, staff, students and researchers throughout the Queen’s community in support of the mission of the University. These server standards provide a set of instructions in a checklist format to help guide those who build and administer servers to secure their systems in an effort to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity and availability of data and systems.
The benefits and intent of these standards documents are to:
Queen’s University IT staff have a responsibility to ensure that the systems that they have built or administer are adequately protected and the security standards applied are in accordance with the policies set out by the University and its administration. The Queen’s University Information Systems Security Policy outlines the responsibilities of department heads (and/or directors and/or unit managers).
A special thank you to the Security Community of Practice: Server Security Standards Group who take credit for establishing and compiling these standards documents to provide to the Queen's community.
We hope that you will find the standards documents helpful and easy to follow.
Thank you for making our University computing environments secure!
