Information Security Programs

Over the past decade several data security standards have emerged. Some data security standards cover specific topics such as financial institutions, health information, or credit card transactions, while others are more general in nature and apply to securing any confidential data. For each new data security standard, the University must evaluate whether it conducts any business processes that apply to the new data security standard. If so, the campus is required to comply with the new standard. When compliance is required, CSULA creates an Information Security Program.

The purposes of the CSULA Information Security Programs are to:

  • Notify the campus of the data security standard
  • Identify the campus constituents who must participate in the program
  • Assign administrative responsibility for the program
  • Outline compliance requirements of the data security standard
  • Define the campus-specific steps that constituents must follow to comply with the data security standard
  • Inform constituents of all required self-assessments, test, reports, questionnaires, certifications, and the like that may be required on an annual or semi-annual basis

Following are the campus Information Security Programs currently in place:
