Information Security

The IT Security Office is responsible for monitoring network/system security events and initiating appropriate action to protect University data and resources.  This group also works with all IT staff by providing assistance and information to all members of the UNI community seeking assistance in making computing more secure.

New threats to computing appear rapidly and the Security Office will work with the various departments at UNI to make sure adequate protection of systems at UNI is taking place. Since the only truly safe computer is one that is turned off, the Security Office will investigate any compromises that occur and work to mitigate similar incidents from happening.

The Security Office also provides an expanding list of best practices and documents on computer security.

If you have questions or concerns about computer security, please do not hesitate to email us at security@uni.edu. If you think the Security Office could provide helpful documentation or discussion with your department, please feel free to contact us.
