Policies vs. Standards vs. Procedures
Policies are formal statements created by the university that reflect our mission, which in this case is the protection of CSUN’s information and assets.
Standards are rules or actions that must be done to ensure our policies are being followed. They indicate expected behavior and must be enforced.
Procedures are detailed step by step instructions on how to implement or adhere to the standards.
Guidelines are recommended practices that are based on industry-standard practices.
