Detailed Procedures and Forms

Information Security Policies and Procedural Handbooks have been and continue to be developed and established by the University of Houston-Clear Lake to describe its foundational principles, goals and objectives as they relate to our efforts to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information created by or entrusted to the university, and maintain compliance with its legal and contractual obligations. 

Effectively incorporating these principles, goals and objectives into the everyday life of the university requires step-by-step, detailed procedures utilizing standard approaches, tools and forms that are documented and accessible to members of the university community. This section of the Information Security Office's web site is intended to serve as a repository of information security-related forms and procedures that help the university to achieve its information security goals and objectives.
