IT Policies and Standards

Purdue Systems Security (PSS) facilitates the development of University information security policies and consults on information security compliance activities under federal, state, and local law.

Policies are reviewed by PSS and by the policy subcommittee of the Security Officers' Working Group. Draft policies are then presented to the University Security Officers' Working Group, the University Data Stewards organization, and other interested stakeholders. After appropriate review by these groups, the formal University process is followed for policy signature.
