These policies fall within the overarching ACD125: Information Security Policy, which defines the boundaries of acceptable use of ASU computing and communication resources. The full policy can be found in the Academic Affairs Policies and Procedures Manual (ACD 125).

What is a policy?
ASU policies are formal statements of intent that reflect ASU’s goals and objectives. ASU IT policies communicate the requirements and expectations of the ASU community and efforts to reduce institutional risk. They encourage operational efficiency and help support ASU compliance efforts.
What is a standard?
If IT policies are the statement of intent, ASU IT standards function as the means to achieve that intent. They set a level for which a bare minimum of requirements are to be met.
Note that a standard is not a step-by-step manual on how to complete a task. IT guidelines and procedures may be found here.
