About Us

The IT Services Security team works to protect the University’s networks from malicious computer attacks, service interruptions, and network harassment. As part of this mission, we seek to:

  • Identify, contain, and prevent the propagation of malicious traffic on the campus network;
  • Provide education, tools, and consulting support to University IT staff in order to best protect their information assets and members of the University community;
  • Perform investigative services at the request of University governing bodies;
  • Contribute to University-wide efforts to make certain that everyone in our community consistently adheres to all information-related laws, regulations, and policies.
