Information Security Program

Simmons Technology will be administering several Information Security initiatives over the coming academic year.  The University’s Information Security Policy has been thoroughly revised to include updated language factoring in the numerous ways people engage with, and store data, on their mobile devices, computers and in the cloud.  The new policy will be distributed in October in conjunction with the mandatory password update process. We will also be distributing the new Information Security Policy as part of our Information Security Awareness program.  Stay tuned for our traveling roadshow where we will be visiting administrative offices with our “What Data Goes Where” question and answer sessions.
