Information Security Policy

Policy Statement and Purpose

Information Technology (IT) tools are vital to the University operations and to the improvement of the quality and efficiency of our work. As repositories for critical and sometimes highly proprietary University community information, to allow improper access, disruption, or the destruction of these resources would create grave consequences for the University. Therefore, the purpose of this document is to communicate the University’s IT policy to the University community of stakeholders, including, but not limited to faculty, students, staff, service providers, vendors and alumni/community. It is the policy of Florida A&M University to protect the confidentiality of and to:
  • Ensure the University community IT resources are appropriately protected from destruction, disruption, alteration or unauthorized access, disclosure and misuse of information.
  • Ensure that IT resource protections are accomplished in a manner consistent with the business and workflow requirements of the University and best practices of the industry.
  • Ensure the security and confidentiality of individual stakeholder’s information as defined in 16 CFR Part 314; protect against any anticipated threats or hazards to the security or integrity of such information; and, protect against unauthorized access to or use of such information that could result in substantial harm or inconvenience to any individual stakeholder.
Federal or State laws, rules, regulations, policies, and procedures governing the confidentiality of data are not superseded, abridged, or amended by this policy.
