Why do we need to be concerned about computing security?

Protect College information

A data breach can have many consequences for the College, including loss of systems and data, lost productivity, fines, lawsuits, and damage to its reputation

Most states have breach notification laws that require certain protections for sensitive information; to understand how these laws impact your work, see Wellesley College’s Written Information Security Program, including details about the required annual security awareness training, which you can access from the MyWellesley portal in Administrivia or Employee Services.
