Our shared vision is to expand our strong foundation to navigate ever-changing risk, enable digital transformation, and support tri-campus units as they focus on discipline-specific priorities.
The risk continues to change at an unprecedented rate and there is still a lot to do. Progress requires collaboration, hard work, transparency, and a genuine desire to see the best for the University.
Information security work does not happen in a vacuum – IT staff must keep the lights on and continue to deliver new features, all while trying to increase trust and resiliency of digital platforms. Yet, the work goes beyond IT. Everyone helps ensure the security of our data and the safety of our community – from being vigilant to phishing messages, to updating devices, and handling data thoughtfully.
Looking ahead, we have many exciting improvements planned to ensure that, as we increase our security posture, we also enable the mission of the University. Some of these improvements will be to tri-campus, institutional services and platforms. But much of the work will happen within divisions, departments, and research labs as they are best positioned to understand what is needed and what works.
Great information security is not technical or transactional, it is transformational.
