IT Security

Printer-friendly version

Welcome to Pace University's Information Technology Security Website!

Computing systems and the Internet have become an integral part of our daily lives and have changed the way we manage and share information, and conduct business.  The proliferation of computers and powerful mobile devices, along with the various electronic communication channels available has created an environment which makes it very easy to obtain and share all kinds of information quickly and conveniently.  Unfortunately, this environment has also made it easier for scammers, hackers, and identity thieves to steal your personal information.  Hence, it has become very important for individuals and organizations to find ways to safeguard confidential information and keep it from falling into the wrong hands.

Information security is critically-important in the current era of computing, networking and ubiquitous access to information and resources via the Internet.   Therefore, ITS is initiating the strategy of planning and creating an “Information Security Program” (ISP), which will encompass risk mitigation, philosophy and acceptance, and University policies on information security.   To aid this objective, a cross-institutional “Information Security Advisory Committee” (ISAC) has been formed to assess the current environment and take action on existing vulnerabilities, create policies, and manage the ISP and the University’s information security responsibilities.

The information on these Web pages is meant to inform and educate the reader and promote ways to safeguard important information. 

It is everyone’s responsibility to keep information secure!
