Information Security

Information Security is responsible for ensuring the confidentiality and data integrity of university computing assets, including university–owned computers, applications, servers, and the data residing on those devices. Information Security strives to maintain the security of university systems and data to prevent it from being used for unintended purposes by educating the campus community about security related issues, preventing the unwanted access of university records by intruders, and developing effective methods of responding to information security incidents.
