Information Security

Information Security is a shared responsibility. The Information Security staff is responsible for helping the University of Richmond community protect information resources by building security awareness and having the appropriate security controls in place. This includes minimizing risk in new and existing system deployments, providing information on vulnerability mitigation, and assisting with security updates. Information Security coordinates with other departments for several activities including incident response, vulnerability scanning, and security consultations.
