Security breaches of confidential or sensitive data have potentially serious consequences: for the person whose confidential information is compromised and for the University, which is accountable for upholding federal and state laws as well as CSU orders and regulations. In addition, individuals involved in unauthorized disclosure of information (even when accidental) may be subject to disciplinary and/or civil action.
SF State's Information Security Program covers multiple facets of protecting information assets, whether they are recorded digitally, on paper, or through other media. Following SF State's Information Security policies and procedures is critical to helping protect you and the University.
