The document linked below contains the current matrix of record types, data managers, and access grantors for protected information stored on campus systems. In line with the current draft Data Management policy (available on request), this document will be updated as and when assigned roles change. Additional content will be added as it becomes available.
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
Google has ended its practice of scanning its users' Apps for Education accounts for advertising purposes after being sued by students and other Gmail users last year, the company announced Wednesday. There's more information on Google's enterprise blog at:
ITS is working on a major overhaul of the current home-grown identity management solution used across HSU systems. The goal is to improve or replace entirely the system used to create and manage user accounts and to uathorize, manage, and control user access to all IT resources on campus. This project will also clean up existing data in the identity management system, ensuring that University services are only made available to eligible individuals and that all eligible individuals have access to the IT resources they need to do their jobs.
CSU policies provide direction and support for managing and guiding third party relationships and for granting access to various University resources. In support of those policies, HSU Information Security, Contracts and Procurement, and the Project Office have collaborated to deliver this list of useful resources; the HSU Guidelines and contract language are particularly important in the context of working with third parties.
Multi-Function Devices (MFDs) are much more powerful than their photocopier-like appearance implies. Their multi-functionality (fax, scan, copy, print) means that their internal hard drives store a great deal of data and, because the devices are connected to both the Internet and the network, that data is vulnerable without appropriate security measures in place. Read more about MFD security.
A Multi-Function Device (MFD) is a device that provides centralized printing, scanning, copying, and faxing functionality; HSU has a number of these devices in offices around campus. MFDs are both network- and Internet-connected, so in many ways they function in a similar fashion to a computer. For this reason, and because they are multipurpose devices, it's vital that they are appropriately configured and managed to protect the information that passes through them.
