Annual Report

Introduction

This document is intended to provide the CIO and University Executive Leadership a high level overview of the information security threats that higher education and WSU are facing, and of the activities and accomplishments of the ITS, Information Security Services (ISS) Unit for FY2016. The bulk of the ISS resources during this time period was devoted to two major efforts, remediating the security incident regarding the University Central Identity and Access Management environment (project affectionately known as Felicia), and the Payment Card Industry (PCI) audit and compliance effort. A considerable amount of time was also spent deploying, learning, and understanding the capabilities of the logging, monitoring and threat intelligence tools that were deployed last summer. The primary objectives for purchasing and deploying these tools is to conduct timely and meaningful security analysis and to provide actionable information and reports regarding security threat sources and capabilities.
