Information is an asset that exists in many forms: written, spoken, electronic. Whatever form the information takes, it needs to be appropriately protected. In an increasingly interconnected global environment, adequate protection of information involves a number of steps including policies, processes, procedures, and software and hardware controls.
While Hampshire’s Information Technology department is responsible for maintaining a secure electronic environment, everyone is responsible for handling information in all formats according to state, federal, and college policies and procedures. At left are links to policies, procedures, and tools that provide the framework for the Information Security program at Hampshire College.
