What Do I Get? 

The Information Security Office (ISO) is committed to protecting information assets, maintaining compliance and supporting the university’s mission. Governed by university policies and standards, the ISO institutes controls and technologies to safeguard university data and resources. The ISO understands that these controls and technologies are not always feasible for a specific school or administrative unit to implement. This service provides an avenue to request an exception from the security protocol.

Why Do I Want It? 

In these situations, the school or administrative unit can provide a reasonable, justifiable business and/or research case for consideration of an information security policy exception. The ISO will evaluate exception requests for risk and mitigating factors and may grant a temporary exception while working with the requester to establish a timeline for compliance and implementation of interim mitigating controls, or may approve an exception for atypical systems with appropriate alternative controls.

Who Can Get It?

This service is available to faculty, staff and students.
