Policy (open access)


The purpose of the policy is to establish that University employees and contractors have responsibilities to learn and apply security practices for the preservation and appropriate use of technology and information assets through mandatory participation in a security awareness program. The USG and Georgia Southern University cannot protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and information systems in today’s highly networked technology environment without ensuring that each person involved understands their roles and responsibilities and is adequately trained to perform them.

Responsible Party

Vice President of Information Technology
