Reason for Policy
A critical piece to an effective information security strategy is the risk assessment. Risk Assessment is a broad term for examining a given scope of infrastructure, policies and practices to find areas where data may be subject to undue risk and/or where current state is not in alignment with policy, standards or regulatory mandate.
The Office of Information technology will undertake risk assessments of the University infrastructure and processes as mandated by University policy, government regulation or industry mandate. The results of risk assessments will be evaluated and controls implemented or adjusted as needed.
