Cybersecurity at the A&M System is an individual and collective efforts of our members. It is necessary for us to work together, sharing resources and information assets.
Each member has an Information Security Officer (ISO) responsible for ensuring the security of information. The ISO’s work together in an ISO Working Group (ISOWG) to further the interests of all members. It allows us to be aware of what each of the members is experiencing, any open issues and any threats that are active or emerging.
Common themes and projects we are addressing in include:
- Security Monitoring and Response saturation of member information
- Identity Management across the enterprise through the use of a master identity directory for members, including harmonized identities and roles
- Security Operations Center effectiveness and efficiency along with services for outside (non-A&M) entities
- International regulations impact on A&M System cybersecurity
- Current threats, breaches and exposures
- Current trends and discussion on mitigation
- Secure Enclaves for research and high-value information processing
- Litigation Hold
- Data Security
- Information Security Policy streamlining
- Data Classification, including classification with metadata
- Risk Assessment using the Archer/SPECTRIM platform
