The Information Security Office (ISO) promotes information security best practices through security awareness, online resources, targeted workshops, annual security awareness programs, and by publishing policies, standards and best practices. Information security program consists of security awareness, compliance, risk management, and incident response. The ISO enforces security elements within application, infrastructure, data architectures, and development methodologies.

This organizational unit is responsible for setting university policies, strategies, standards, and procedures for information and system security including protection, disaster recovery, and business continuance. ISO also provides forensic services for colleges and departments needing administrative investigation of an employee’s computer in the event of an incident. ISO continually develops and implements security audits and procedures to ensure system and information integrity, availability, reliability, confidentiality, and legal/regulatory compliance measures are met.

The ISO promotes the secure and responsible use of the University’s network.
