The Team (staff members)

Information Privacy & Security is a Team Effort!

The Information Security Office at Santa Clara University formed in December 2012 when Robert Henry filled the new role of Chief Information Security Officer.  Bryan McClenahan joined the team in August 2013 as Sr. Information Security Analyst and doubled the team size.  We are a small team and we invite everyone at SCU to join us in protecting private information.
