Information Security

The Information Security Office (ISO) serves as the University's resource for guidance on information security compliance with information-related laws, regulations and policies. The ISO administers the University's Information Security Program and reports to senior management through the Vice President for Information Services.

The Information Security Office:

  • Oversees information security policies, standards and guidelines.
  • Provides compliance oversight, and risk assessments.
  • Coordinates information security efforts, incident response and user awareness.
  • Works in conjunction with university officials in such areas as FERPA, GLBA and PCI to maintain regulatory compliance and to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of University information assets.

The ISO keeps in close contact with outside security organizations, researches new trends, monitors current security events, and collaborates in disseminating new information to the Bryant community.
