Information Security Policy
Nazareth College creates, collects, maintains, uses and transmits confidential information, including Personally Identifiable Information (PII) relating to individuals associated with the College, including, but not limited to, applicants, students, parents, alumni, employees and vendors. The College is committed to protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of this information against inappropriate access and use. To that end, the Information Security Group (ISG) was established in 2011 to partner with the Nazareth community to provide ongoing proactive security policies, procedures and education and to promote a general culture of security awareness.
This policy and associated procedures and standards provide direction for information security in accordance with College requirements and relevant laws and regulations. Nazareth College information security practices are designed to promote and encourage appropriate use of information assets. They are not intended to prevent, prohibit, or inhibit the sanctioned use of information assets as required to meet the College’s core mission and campus academic and administrative purposes.
In adopting this Policy, the College strives to help all College community members to understand the definition of confidential information and their obligations and individual responsibilities. The College will provide appropriate training and education that will enable the College community to comply with the intent and the specifications laid out by the Policy.
