CSAC charterThe UCAR Computer Security Advisory Committee (CSAC):
Preserve authorized restrictions on information access and disclosure, including means for protecting personal privacy and proprietary information. A loss of confidentiality is the unauthorized disclosure of information.
Guard against improper information modification or destruction, and ensuring information non-repudiation and authenticity. A loss of integrity is the unauthorized modification or destruction of information.
Ensure timely and reliable access to and use of information. A loss of availability is the disruption of access to or use of information or an information system.
Potential Impact on Organizations and Individuals
FIPS Publication 199 defines three levels of potential impact on organizations or individuals should there be a breach of security (i.e., a loss of confidentiality, integrity, or availability). UCAR will apply these definitions to our information and information systems within the context of our organization.
