Information Privacy & Security is a Team Effort!
The Information Security Office at Santa Clara University invites everyone at SCU to join us in protecting private information.
Information Security and Privacy Program Charter:
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 roles 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.
Use of Santa Clara University’s information resources must be consistent with Santa Clara’s educational goals and comply with local, state, and federal laws, and University policies. Visit Technology Policies, Procedures, and Standards for more information.
