Stop. Think. Connect.

UTech's Strategic Plan highlights Information Security among its top five priorities. Protecting the confidentiality, integrity and availability of our information and information systems is a responsibility we all share and the Information Security Office within UTech is here to help. Loss, corruption or inappropriate access to information can interfere with CWRU's mission, interrupt business, damage reputations or result in negative financial consequences.

The Information Security Office assesses and helps CWRU organizations and members manage the risk of information loss or exposure and assists all departments in protecting the privacy of student, staff, faculty and research records.

ISO also serves as the reference and education center for data protection across the CWRU community. We help establish policies, advise in meeting our security and privacy goals and take an active role in many aspects of University Technology implementation.

Take a look through the website and learn how to protect your data; how to request assistance if you think something is not right with your electronic system; how to put a research protocol together involving sensitive information and more.
