Information Privacy and Security Compliance Council 

The Information Privacy and Security Compliance Council's (IPSC Council) goal is to collaboratively ensure institutional alignment with federal and state privacy regulations, as well as industry standards for restricted or private information collected, used, or stored by the University. As requested by the Board of Trustees, the IPSC Council supersedes the Security Working Group and recently combined membership with the HIPAA Subcommittee.
