ISAAC Starting soon

November 6, 2013

In the coming months, all PVAMU departments will be required to complete one or more Information Security Awareness, Assessment, and Compliance (ISSAC) Risk Assessments. The ISAAC Risk Assessment is an important tool for benchmarking the security of the University’s data, applications and computing equipment. This information will be used to plan and prioritize proper defenses to enhance confidentiality, integrity and availability of PVAMU’s information resources.

We will need your assistance in ensuring that this assessment is completed timely and accurately. Please be on the lookout for information about training dates and details related to the questionnaire and process. The departmental information systems representative (e.g., system administrator, security administrator, faculty/researchers that manage their own servers or manager/supervisor) will need to overview the security posture of individual information systems and compliance with state and local information security standards. These individuals will be required to attend various information sessions before performing the actual assessments. The Office of Information Resource Management will begin contacting each of you individually. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

If you have any questions, you may contact Mr. Louis Morgan at lamorgan@pvamu.edu or 936-261-2126.
