Safeguarding data to support important work

We work in collaboration with Information Services and Solutions (ISS) to maintain the highest level of IT security. Our technology and expertise keep data secure and systems and networks operational.

Adhering to industry standards, university-wide policies, and government regulations, we work proactively to avoid breaches by reducing the risk of compromise to institutional data, systems, and networks. Our team also has the training and agility to contain and remedy security incidents that breach our defenses.

Please contact us if you need HIPAA and NIST guidance, audit assistance, security consulting, or general guidance and consulting.
