Previous Meeting | Next Meeting (of PSIFramework)

Information Incident Reporting Policy Stakeholder Team (IReport PST)

Thursday Nov 20, 2008, 11:00-12:00 Rm 3139C CS


Note: This meeting is the formal presentation of the IReport recommendations to the CIO.

  1. Agenda review. (All) OK

  2. Incident reporting as part of a broader framework for protection of sensitive information.

    Action: Continue to work on PSIFramework.

  3. How broad should the reporting requirement be: Only incidents involving sensitive information? Broader?

    • At the November forum people raised the issue of reporting incidents other than unauthorized access to sensitive information. The question was: should reporting of all of those types of incidents also be required? In response, the team decided that the IReport initiative focuses specifically on incidents involving unauthorized access to sensitive information, and the proposed poilcy will only mandate reporting of such incidents. The team's recommendations do, however, make explicit that people may voluntarily report any other type of incident or policy violation.
    • Strong policies to increase information security can save the university money that would be spent on monitoring and incident remediation.

  4. Compliance issues:
    • Economic incentives for units to report.

      Action: Ron has been having conversations with faculty members and university leadership regarding the question of economic incentives to improve information security. The basic model for such incentives would be: if the unit takes certain steps or does certain things, then the university will "indemnify" them for up to some high percentage of the cost of responding to a information security incident, but if the unit does not do those things, the university will only indemnify them for a lower percentage.

    • Protection of individuals who report incidents.

      Action: We did not discuss specifics at the meeting, other than to recognized that protection of individuals must also be addressed during drafting and implementation of the policy.

  5. Implementation management:
    • Who owns what parts?

      Action: Possible partnership between Risk Management and CIO office. Also want to get Internal Audit further engaged with OCIS regarding information security.

    • How to coordinate?

      Action: Coordination will be provided by an implementation team, however, certain actions will begin before the implementation team is formed. See next steps below.

    • Further discussions with the campus community?

      Action: See next steps below.
  6. Next steps. (All)
