Information Security Awareness


This section implements Integrated CSU Administrative Manual (ICSUAM) Policy 8035.0.

Initial Information Security Awareness Training

At each new-hire, faculty, and new student orientation, ITS management personnel stress the importance of information security to new members of the University community.

In particular, each new-hire, faculty and new student orientation presentation delivered by a ITS manager includes at least the following points of emphasis:

  • Password security
  • Physical security
  • University policies regarding responsible use of ITS resources, information security, and data classification
  • The open nature of the Internet and the fact that information transmitted over the Internet may be intercepted by anyone
  • Applicable local, State and Federal laws, including a notice that cautions new members of the campus community against copyright infringement

Recurrent Information Security Awareness Training

Periodically, ITS holds information security awareness recurrent training in addition to ongoing awareness efforts. The recurrent training will include a review of the University’s information security incidents, the special emphasis items in the paragraph above, and a presentation of both common and new information security threats.
