Technology Security Review

Tuesday, April 9 2013


The University of Idaho is committed to ensuring the security of the technology and data that play a significant role in the success of our institution. Information Technology Services (ITS) is working with a team from Indiana University to assess the general state of technology and information security at the University of Idaho. Project information is available at www.uidaho.edu/its/it-security.

The assessment, the onsite component of which is scheduled for April 22-23, includes research, network testing, tours, interviews and discussions with people throughout our community – those directly involved in technology services as well as functional staff and end users. The review is broad in scope, looking well beyond technology supported by ITS. The results of the assessment, to be published in the ITS Security Team website, will allow the University of Idaho to understand technology security vulnerabilities and prioritize efforts to improve security. It will provide input on critical investments and position the university to better address both the threats and the opportunities that technology provides.

We would appreciate your support during the assessment and look forward to sharing the deliverable and an action plan with you this summer. If you have any questions please contact Dave Lien at 208-885-2128 or davelien@uidaho.edu.
