Santa Clara University

Information Security Office


The mission of the Information Security Office is to support Santa Clara University’s outstanding undergraduate, graduate, and research programs by protecting the university’s information assets. Ensuring that Santa Clara University’s students, faculty, and staff have access to all of the information resources they need to fulfill their role(s) at the university is the core value of this mission.

The Santa Clara University Information Privacy and Security Program strives to create an environment which will help protect all members of the SCU community from information security threats that could compromise privacy, productivity, reputation, or intellectual property rights. The University recognizes the vital role information plays in its educational, research, and service missions, and the importance of taking the necessary steps to protect information in all forms. 

As more information is used and shared by students, faculty, and staff, both within and outside the university, a concomitant effort must be made to protect information resources from threats by establishing responsibilities, guidelines, and practices that will help the University prevent, deter, detect, respond to and recover from compromises to these resources.
