The Office of Information Security is responsible for assuring information confidentiality, data integrity, and systems availability. We accomplish this by:

  • Educating the campus community about security related issues
  • Developing and enforcing policies and routinely reviewing those policies
  • Utilizing the strongest technical measures possible to protect campus resources
  • Developing measures to react to incidents and events that endanger the institution's information assets
