Information Technology Services (ITS) is responsible for assuring the availability, integrity and confidentiality of information that we all use in our daily interactions at the College. ITS has been working with SMART Associates over the past year to craft a set of information security policies and procedures. These policies and procedures are in the process of being approved by the appropriate committees and officers at the College. In the meantime ITS is launching an information security awareness campaign to assist all members of the Franklin & Marshall Community to practice safe computing. That is, what five to ten steps can we all take to ensure that the data on our computers is safe, secure and private. ITS will also be implementing some new system-wide mechanisms to assist all of us to practice "safe computing".
Before outlining these steps or implementing any new procedures, I would like to share our "IT Code of Conduct", hereby making formal a set of practices and procedures that we have followed for years. I've seen first hand that the integrity of our IT staff is indeed of the highest caliber. All members of the ITS staff have read and agreed to abide by the ITS Code of Conduct.
