UIS Launches Security Awareness Education Campaign, "Be Informed, Be Aware, Be Responsible About Information Security"
UIS will be meeting with all academic and administrative departments on campus to educate employees about the importance of securing student and employee confidential data created and used during the normal course of operation. The purpose of our meeting will be to answer questions about the information presented on this web site which serves as a prerequisite for identifying what information qualifies as confidential, protected information at SSU. Secondly, we will ask departments and their employees to engage in efforts to identify where confidential data resides on individual computers. Departments should then implement the action plan that will ensure confidential and protected data is properly electronically stored and secured.
The Information Security pages contain information regarding information security, identity theft, and tips on how to protect your personal data as well as the data you may need access to as a part of your job.
