Mission Statement

The Office of Information Security provides CSU students, faculty, and staff with timely information as it relates to data security.

The Office of Information Security is responsible for assuring information confidentiality, data integrity, and systems availability. We accomplish this by:

  • Educating the campus community about security related issues
  • Developing and enforcing policies and routinely reviewing those policies
  • Utilizing the strongest technical measures possible to protect campus resources
  • Developing measures to react to incidents and events that endanger the institution's information assets

TE(A)M:uL8! is a first of its kind, action-packed Spring STE(A)M festival in the greater Chattahoochee Valley, Columbus, Georgia and Phenix City, Alabama areas.

The Office of Information Security – Dee Spivey & Loretta Marshall along with colleagues from UITS participated in this year's expo. In addition to presenting to students the importance of having a secure password, we also showcased the Google glass and 3D printers.
