Cloud Services

Weber State University uses a combination of cloud services and continues to move forward with cloud computing technologies to better serve the needs of faculty, staff, and students. Protecting WSU data in a cloud computing environment is increasingly critical, as we continue to implement these services across all campus units.

Cloud computing should not be used for university information that is private, personal, sensitive, or regulated unless there is a contractual agreement between WSU and the service provider that protects the security and confidentiality of the information and data. Contractual agreements must be reviewed between any third party vendor that provides these services. Security and Confidentiality of private information and any data hosted in a cloud service is of the utmost importance and must be properly vetted and approved.

Please contact the WSU Information Security Office to have your cloud services reviewed and approved for security requirements. To request a security review of your cloud services, please fill out the security evaluation form.
