Security

Why Information Security (InfoSec) is so important?

Protecting ourselves means protecting our personally identifiable information (PII), our protected health information (PHI), and our campus intellectual property from theft and damage caused by bad actors.  In today’s world, it’s become imperative that we all play a role and take responsibility in protecting ourselves and our data.

To help in this effort, our CSU Pueblo Information Technology Services (ITS) department has created this website where we’ll learn about social engineering scams like Phishing emails, Vishing phone calls, Smishing text messages, and even more sophisticated cybersecurity attacks like Ransomware, Data breaches/leaks, or other malware designed to steal our campus data or our personal data.

Experiencing an InfoSec incident on campus can cost us all with:

  • Economic costs: Disruption in our work, and the cost of repairing our damaged systems
  • Reputational costs: Loss of customer trust, loss of current and future customers to competitors and poor media coverage
  • Regulatory costs: GDPR, HIPPA, PCI, and other data breach laws mean that our organization could suffer large regulatory fines

We look forward to working with you as we all continue to learn and grow in InfoSec!
