Information Security employees responding to incident


Education represents a commitment to share our perspective about emerging information security risks. The modern, internet-connected world offers amazing value and convenience, but also introduces new opportunities for criminals to steal information. When we recommend changes that could be disruptive to UTD operations, we strive to inform those affected in advance and educate them about “why” we are concerned and see opportunities to adjust security.


Partnership represents our desire to strengthen relationships across campus. We believe more can be achieved when teams work toward a shared goal. For example, we participate in the evaluation of new vendors and test the security of new software before decisions are finalized or websites go live on the internet. This allows for greater safety and reliability from the beginning, when it is less expensive and less disruptive.


Solutions represents our approach to building appropriate security around information assets, considering both technology and the impact on people. When we face a new security challenge, our first answer is not “no,” but rather we ask, “How?” We create conversations so risks can be measured against rewards and reasonable decisions can then be made.
