Information Security Services ensures the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the University’s information technology resources and data by safeguarding them from compromise, misuse, loss or damage caused either intentionally or unintentionally. This allows the University to continue its mission-critical operations of education, research, service and administration. 

WHAT WE DO

We strive to continually improve and deliver the following services:

  • Application Scanning – We conduct security scanning of vendor-supplied applications or those developed in-house developed before they are deployed and after maintenance has been performed.
  • Network Vulnerability – We conduct penetration tests and system scans to ensure the security of information technology resources across the University.
  • Incident Response – We have a process to quickly and effectively address reported security incidents reported to us through various channels.
  • Security Awareness – We provide information security awareness training to faculty, staff and students of the University and its regional campuses. We also post recent examples of phishing scams to help educate our community.
