In the coming months, the Institute will be visited by UT Audit and Compliance to conduct an audit of our IT Security program. This audit will be checking to see that we have all of our required IT security policies and procedures in place, but will also verify that we are following them.

Please visit UTIA Policies and Procedures and scroll down to the IT Security section to see all of our polcies (aka IT Security Plans) and procedures. A short paragraph of each policy and procedure, as well as how the policy or procedure applies to you, can be found at UTIA IT Security Plans and Procedures – Brief Summaries. Each policy and procedure has a link to take you to that specific page for the full content.

Please remember that it is every user’s responsibility to be aware of and follow all Institute policies and procedures, as well as all UT policies and procedures (see PolicyTech). While this is a lot of information, these monthly emails often highlight a policy(s) or procedure(s) to try to help keep you current on the latest information.

If you or your department/county/center/unit have any questions, or would like for me to come talk with you about IT security, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you!
