The University of Hawaiʻi will provide updates on data governance and HIPAA policies during a presentation on Data Governance and Information Security at UH West Oʻahu on March 7. Faculty, staff, and students are invited to a two-hour presentation beginning at 9:30 a.m. in C208. UH’s Sandra Furuto (Director, Data Governance), Jodi Ito (Chief Information Security Officer) and JT Ash (HIPAA Compliance Officer) are scheduled to speak.
The session comes amid rising concerns nationally and internationally about cyber threats, including data breaches, identity theft, and other malicious activity. The presenters will conduct a briefing on data governance and information security in light of the significant recent updates to UH executive policies 2.214 (Security and Protection of Sensitive Information), 2.215 (Institutional Data Governance) and 2.217 (HIPAA Policy), and pending updates to 2.210 (Use and Management of Information Technology Resources).
The Data Governance and Information Security presentations are being conducted at all UH campuses. Besides highlighting recent information security incidents at UH, the discussion will cover how the policies and procedures protect the University’s sensitive information and other critical information assets. The session will also cover upcoming regulations that may impact UH.
