UH, State Promise Action to Protect Private Info
No amount of money and preparation will prevent personal data held by the state becoming public, government information officials said at a legislative briefing Tuesday.
But the University of Hawaii System, which recently suffered breaches affecting tens of thousands of students, said it is committed to launching a $1.9 million initiative for better security at all 10 of its campuses.
And the state is examining options to improve its own security. A question raised Tuesday was whether each agency should find its own solution or the state should develop a unified approach to the problem.
