The Security Group assists departments on campus with developing and maintaining IT security. This is done through consulting services on an individual basis when requested and includes the following:
Since people are an integral part to IT security, it is important that there be policies and ways of enforcing them. We can work with departments to both develop these policies and also make sure there are enforcement procedures in place.
We can help departments with planning and setting up new systems. This goes beyond just patching individual machines and includes looking at the overall application at all levels.
You can have the most up to date antivirus on a locked down system, but this would not help in the case of a natural disaster or an authorized person accidentally erasing the data. We can help by reviewing your department's backup and disaster recovery strategies.
