Cyber criminals are clever, innovative, well financed, and technically proficient; they are willing to take extraordinary efforts to attack. This is a serious threat to the College and to us as individuals. To combat them, we have to become familiar with their tactics and techniques, learn how to safeguard our systems, and follow best practices with respect to information security.
PCC seeks to ensure that everyone using, accessing, storing, transmitting or overseeing college resources understands their responsibility in reducing the risk of compromise and takes appropriate security measures to protect college resources.
In order to protect the institution and its private information and data and to comply with federal law, state law, and fiduciary responsibility, PCC developed an Information Security program for critical operational, private, and financial information.
