Willie Hagan, Vice President for Administration

Subject:  Information Security Committee

 

Chair Bedell explained at the last Senate meeting, Senator Shapiro asked to remove the Information Security Committee from the Consent Calendar and requested the Senate be briefed on this new committee and how it relates to the Senate Information Technology Committee.

 

Senator Hagan explained university information security has become a huge issue, not just here, but around the country. CSU policy requires that each campus develop policies relating to information security in terms of policies, procedures, protecting equipment and securing data itself. 

 

Selected information security legal requirements are:

 

§   Family Education Rights & Privacy Act is a federal law protecting the privacy of student education records.

§   California’s Information Practices Act (CIPA) declares that the right to privacy is a personal and fundamental right protected by Section I of Article I of the Constitution of California and by the United States Constitution.

§   Title 5, California Code of Regulations includes principles of personal information management.

§   California Civil Code/Senate Bill 25 limits the California State University from use of social security numbers as identifiers for students and employees.

§   California’ Public Records Act makes certain information a matter of public record.

§   Gramm-Leach-Bililey Act (GLBA) requires clear disclosure by all financial institutions of their privacy policy regarding the sharing of non-public personal information with both affiliates and third parties.

§   Health Information Portability & Accountability Act (HIPPA) establishes national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health plans and employers.  Also addresses the security and privacy of health data. 

§   CSU Information Security Policy requires the University to develop and maintain a written set of security policies and procedures that at a minimum implement information security, confidentiality practices consistent with these policies; and end user responsibilities for the physical security of the equipment and the appropriate use of hardware, software, and network facilities.

 

Due to the extensive task involved, Senator Hagan formed an Information Security Advisory Committee which Mike Parker co-chairs and Bill Barrett also serve on. Recommendation to place three faculty on this committee was Senator Hagan’s attempt to make sure to get input from the faculty, not to mention that this project requires a lot of advice and guidance from people from around the campus.

 

It was m/s/p [Nanjundappa/Gilbert] to approve nominees Samuel Yang, Elizabeth Housewright and Joe Weber to serve on the Information Security Committee.

 

The meeting adjourned at 12:12 p.m.
