CCC Information Security Center

CCC Information Security CenterThe California Community Colleges Information Security Center offers an extensive array of services to maintain the integrity of information systems. Services have been selected specifically to help colleges meet state and federal information security requirements and enforce district policies. They include:

  • Vulnerability Assessment Scanning
  • Data Inventory & Monitoring
  • Security Gap Analysis
  • Information Security Mailing List
  • Security Awareness Training
  • SSL Certificates
  • Central Logging & Analysis
  • Vulnerability Management Service

In addition, the center works directly with the CCC technology community to understand the college system’s information security priorities and develop appropriate IS services, conducts security assessments for the colleges, provides security training through bi-annual in-person workshops, and oversees security practices at the CCC Technology Center and systemwide technology initiatives.

A CCC Information Security Policy was developed by the Information Security Advisory Committee (ISAC), which is chaired by Aamir Khan, Chief Information Security Officer of the Technology Center. Systemwide adoption of this policy is critical to the success of information security initiatives on campuses and sets an institutional priority and awareness across all areas.

The Information Security Center is working with the ISAC to roll out a new training and monitoring program that will teach college IT staff how best to perform self assessments and work to peer review one another’s processes, procedures, and controls. This will further commit the colleges to a shared responsibility for the security of student data.
