Information Security Policy

Effective Date: December 1, 2021

After approval from the Technology@Wheaton governance committees and review from our legal counsel and SAC, we have finalized the Wheaton College Information Security Policy.  As it states, “The purpose of this Information Security Policy is to clearly establish Wheaton College’s role in protecting its information assets and communicate minimum expectations for meeting these requirements.”  Anyone with Wheaton College credentials is welcome to read through the policy and familiarize themselves with it.

Key Benefits and Features

  • This provides a framework for the college’s comprehensive information security program based on NIST standards and helps comply with regulatory and statutory security requirements.

Impact on College Community

While everyone at Wheaton College plays a role in protecting Wheaton’s information assets, this policy primarily impacts AIT as it manages the information systems and vendor relationships that affect college data, and the data stewards charged with managing data under their purview.
