Privacy and Information Security Initiative

In June 2010, President Mark Yudof convened the UC Privacy and Information Security Steering Committee. He charged the committee with reviewing existing privacy and information security policies; developing a new overarching policy framework to address privacy and information security in the modern legal, technology, and social context; and providing updated guidance to assist the University community in meeting legal obligations to safeguard "protected" data while at the same time abiding by deeply held principles of privacy.
