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
The Office of Information Security team are proud to display our accomplishments
