Information Privacy, Security, and Management
Information is the cornerstone of the University’s teaching, research and administrative efforts. Although much of that information is open to the world, it is important to understand what types of information must be secured and how to secure each type. The security and operation of the University’s technology systems depend on the cooperation and vigilance of everyone.
