Information Security and Acceptable Use Policy

Thanks to feedback received from campus leaders, we have published a new policy which better reflects the unique needs of UTD. The policy can be found via the link below.  Users will be asked to acknowledge the policy annually during the NetID password reset process.  If you have questions or would like to make recommendations for future policy revisions, please email [email protected] or call 972-883-6810.



Information Security Standards

Beginning in 2015, the ISO will publish standard checklists intended to help systems administrators. These documents will be focused on technologies such as operating systems, databases, and networks. They will be published in Confluence and linked to this page.  If you have questions or would like information about improving system security email [email protected] or call 972-883-6810.
