  • Mission Statement :

    The mission of the Network and Systems Security Office at AUC is to ensure the integrity, confidentiality, and availability of electronic resources, services, and data at the University. The scope of the security office includes both well-defined areas (such as computer viruses, denial of service attacks, data integrity and policy compliance) as well as trying to anticipate future threats. Some non-security issues, such as SPAM, also fall to the security office, because it is now the primary means for the dissemination of computer viruses. The security group's scope also includes information privacy. Ensuring information privacy presupposes information security.
    Some specific goals of the Security Services Group are:

    • To provide security oriented services to the campus community

    • To foster constructive dialog pertaining to information security between the faculty, staff, and students and the information technology professionals on the campus

    • To minimize disruptions to the University's primary mission of education and research from cyber security attacks and techniques used to prevent cyber security attacks
