Information Security Program Council
Security Program activities will be divided into those of the Information Security Program Council (ISPC) and ISPC Working Groups.
The Information Security Program Council (ISPC) has been identified and authorized by senior leadership to implement the Program and publish related policy, procedure and standards. This broad-based group represents stakeholders for business, academic, and instructional activities for the campus. It also includes the chairs of each established working group.
The ISPC acts to set information security program priorities, responds to input from the working groups, helps to assure appropriate allocation of resources, and acts to formally adopt policies and procedures. In addition to working group team leads, it consists of a core group of senior leaders and others who have a vested interest in assuring the success of the information security program.
The Information Security Program Council (ISPC) actively assesses risks, threats, and mechanisms for responding to the threats to form a comprehensive information security program.
The Information Security Program Council may, in turn, establish domain specific working groups as necessary and coordinate their activities; these working groups will either be established as Standing or Ad Hoc.
