Title: Web Standards and Security Measures Policy
Applicable: Furman University [Students, Staff and Faculty]
Contacts: IT Service Center ext. 3277
Background: As the use of web technologies increase on Furman’s campus, it has become necessary to create a policy that states Furman’s web standards and preferred security measures.
Policy: All campus web services and sites that transmit or receive unique user input via forms or other technologies should be implemented with industry standard encryption. Before web sites are posted or technologies implemented, the security requirements should be considered. Systems that allow for generic or anonymous posting should be implemented with features or additional modules that allow for protection against spam and other abuse trends. New technologies will be considered based on the possible need to integrate with our portal technology.
