Responsibility for implementing an information security program for each campus is delegated by the Board to individual campus presidents.

Additionally, contractors and consultants with access to the University's information have the same duty of protection toward that informatiom as if they were an HSU employee. Those awarding contracts to contractors and/or consultants must ensure that the contractors and/or consultants are aware of their obligations to protect the University's information.
If you have any questions, please contact the campus Information Security Officer at (707) 826-3815 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
