About the Information Security Office

Monday, Jan. 28, 2013

The mission of the Information Security Office is to support Santa Clara University’s outstanding undergraduate, graduate, and research programs by protecting the university’s information assets.

Ensuring that Santa Clara University’s students, faculty, and staff have access to all of the information resources they need to fulfill their role(s) at the university is the core value of this mission.

The Information Security Office leads efforts to implement industry and higher education best practices in information security.  Examples of these efforts are establishing an information privacy & security awareness program, developing information governance and policy programs, and identifying ways to prevent information security incidents.

SCU established the Information Security Office with the hiring of Robert Henry as Chief Information Security Officer in December 2012.  Bob comes to SCU with over 20 years experience in information technology, the last 5 1/2 years serving as the Information Security Officer for Boise State University.  He started out his career in Higher Education teaching Rhetoric and American Literature at Boise State in 1989.  His teaching career morphed into an IT career when he joined two other faculty members in setting up networked computer classrooms for teaching writing in 1991.  Since '91, he served in systems and network administration before focusing on information security.
