The information security council (ISC) is established in order to ensure broad consultation in planning and decision-making processes. The ISC will: assist in the review of envisioned and unanticipated risks to the university’s digital assets; ensure a robust and practiced process exists around incidence response; collaborate with the president or designate to initiate information security initiatives; ensure education of the university community on digital security best practices; oversee the development, recommendation and review of procedures, standards and guidelines for the protection of the university’s digital assets and ensure timely and accurate reporting on information security risks to the appropriate governing groups including the senior executive and the audit committee of governing council. The council will focus on transparency, awareness and educating the community as much as possible. Working groups will strive to run ideas by the community and solicit feedback.
