The Minimum Security Standards (MSS) are baseline requirements for securing Yale IT Systems. The MSS ensures we build and maintain secure Yale IT Systems based on risk.
This is a representation of the complete Minimum Security Standards (MSS). This represents a consolidated list of all Yale's current security requirements. These requirements come from Yale's current security policies, procedures, and practices. To read more about the MSS and how it works, visit cybersecurity.yale.edu/mss.
To narrow down the MSS to the requirements for your IT System, use the MSS calculator. The MSS Calculator is located at cybersecurity.yale.edu/mss/calculator.
This reflects the streamlined MSS as of 3/15/2023. The purpose of this reorganization was to improve comprehension and reduce redundancy. The requirements in the MSS have not changed. To view details on this change or view the old version of the MSS, see our streamlining the MSS webpage located at cybersecurity.yale.edu/news/streamlining-minimum-security-standards.
