Berkeley's Minimum Security Standards for Electronic Information (MSSEI) are security controls that systems must meet in order to handle campus data.
The Information Security Office (ISO) offers an assessment service using theMSSEIto identify technical and procedural weaknesses in campusapplicationsthat store, process, or transmit UC P2/P3 and UC P4 data.
The MSSEI assessment service is designed to reduce risk to campus by assessing systems against minimum security standards. System and service operators benefit by being able to assure customers (campus) that they are meeting minimum security standards and protecting customer data.
For more information, see the Details of the MSSEI Assessment Service.
