Sul Ross State University (SRSU) considers information technology to be a critical enabler in meeting its mission and has made significant investments in information technology assets and capabilities. SRSU recognizes the inherent value of these information technology resources to the state, the Texas State University System, and their constituents. Likewise, Texas Administrative Code, Title 1, Part 10, Chapter 202, Subchapter C (TAC 202) underlines the importance of information technology resources residing in Texas public higher education institutions by requiring state institutions “to protect these assets against unauthorized access, disclosure, modification or destruction,” and “to assure the availability, integrity and confidentiality of information.”

To complete this task, the information provided on this blog is used by the security team at Sul Ross to determine where we are meeting these criteria and when changes to policies, procedures and guidelines are appropriate to ensure that we are. On these pages is information collected from external agencies as well items created internally that can guide one through the process of ensuring the state’s resources are used appropriately and the needed amount of protections are provided.
