Re: SECURITY Digest - Federal Laws and IT

Great topic everyone and wonderful resources.

My additional 2 cents is STOP THINK and GET COUNSEL.

1)  ARe you a public or private university?  (many publics that are State U may not be considered by their counsel as 
required to comply with other State's law (or foreign laws), depending.

2) Are you wanting a comprehensive listing of the potential federal laws that may apply to you?  That may be longer 
than you think and it also may depend on whether it's research or not, student or not, etc.

3)  do you really just want to start with a program design that addresses most requirements?  Carlos' chart is an 
excellent beginning/standard for many things.  Including oversight, responsibility or accountability?

Perhaps you need to consider an overriding/overarching program that views what you should generally be doing for most 
programs, and then consider where other programs might need more or less, rather than focusing on a single law with 
which to comply.  Mind you, having a mapping to the controls can be very, very helpful when there are questions or a 
specific program that may require specific controls.

So again what is it you're trying to accomplish with the review of laws?

FYI--COPPA does not apply to non-profits, so if you're a public, ask your counsel about their position on that.  I can 
tell you all day long and so can others, but at the end of the day, you want to follow the Counsel's direction (even if 
you're a lawyer), b/c that's their job for the institution.  There is always the should we comply even if we don't 
"have" consideration as well--that may be a community conversation.
