Tuesdays & Thursdays
September 17 - October 20, 2015

In accordance with the San Jose State University Information Security Program and CSU Information Security Audit Report 15-16, the Information Security Office is finalizing twenty new Standards for SJSU.  These standards will play an important role protecting SJSU's information assets and will help ensure an adequate level of security is attained, resources are used efficiently and the best security practices are adopted.

The Information Security Standard Forums will be an opportunity to learn about the standards, ask questions and provide feedback.  At each meeting a short (20 minute) presentation will be given in regard to 2 standards followed by group discussion.  These standards will impact all University systems including Auxiliaries.

 Please review the Draft Information Security Standards and bring your questions and comments!
