I-SAFE Program

I-SAFE: Information Security Awareness For Everyone

Objectives

The proposed I-SAFE program aims at bringing the attention of all users of SPSU information systems to information security issues and increasing their understanding of vulnerabilities and threats affecting the security of SPSU information systems. I-SAFE focuses on improving the security skills and competencies of students, faculty and staff in managing, designing, developing, and administering information systems.

The SPSU Center for Information Security Education (CISE) will maintain and conduct I-SAFE program to insure that all students and personnel within SPSU are aware of the information security policies and procedures, standards, and guidelines, as well as their individual duties and responsibilities for information security.
