Institutional Environment Policy


To provide Pomona College with guidance in identifying and gaining an understanding of the components of the institution that make up its information security system and thereby enable Pomona College to manage cybersecurity risk to systems, assets, data, and capabilities.


Pomona College’s objectives, stakeholders, and activities are understood and prioritized; this information is used by Pomona College to inform cybersecurity roles, responsibilities, and risk management decisions.


  • Pomona College provides services such as the Learning Management System (currently Sakai) and the Student Information System as a service to other colleges in the Claremont University Consortium.
  • Pomona College addresses security issues in support of its services.
  • Pomona College establishes alternative services as back up of essential functions in the event that part of the infrastructure or the service becomes unavailable.
  • Knowing and understanding the critical assets of the College and those consortial services facilitates the prioritization of resources.
