Humboldt State University has established a set of data protection and security standards that comprise specific configuration settings in order to meet the requirements of the CSU Data Classification Standards for computers and other storage devices containing Level 1 data.
Q: Are online storage solutions like Google Drive appropriate for class work as well as personal files?
HSU has licensed Symatec's PGP Desktop/Netshare security software to protect Level 1 and Level 2 data as required by the HSU IT Procedure on Encryption so that it can be safely accessed, stored, and shared with others without risking that data falling into the wrong hands. The software can be used to:
|Departmental access||Files for your classes||
"You Only" files
Humboldt State University's Information Security Office works with the campus community to secure system and network resources and to protect the confidentiality of student, faculty, and staff information. If you have ideas on improving HSU's information security, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Phishing scams are attempts by hackers and cyberciminals to steal personal information or hijack computing resources for nefarious purposes. The most common (and most successful) phishing scams are emails that appear to come from a legitimate source (for instance, HSU Technology Help Desk, your bank, eBay, PayPal), and which contain a link that directs you to equally legitimate-looking web pages.
IT personnel are expected to have a solid understanding of information security issues, both in general and how they apply specifically to the use of computers on the HSU campus. For ease of use, this page brings together a number of security-related resources - you're encouraged to review and become familiar with them.
