ISRA Mission

The OIT Security & Compliance (S&C) ISRA mission is information security compliance. This mission involves compliance with rules regarding the operation and management of information technology resources — regardless of who made the rules, what kind of rules they are, or who or what the rules apply to. Equally important is that this compliance be achieved in a way that supports the educational culture and goals of the university.

S&C ISRA achieves and demonstrates campus-wide compliance by making use of a multi-phase strategy:

  • Understand the implications of applicable regulations to IT implementation throughout the university.
  • Perform security risk assessments for IT products, services, projects and compliance goals.
  • Create and implement a set of regulations, standards and controls to achieve effective compliance.
  • Teach, plan, monitor, enforce and document the control set on an ongoing basis.
