I am thrilled to welcome you to the launch of the new Office of Information Security (OIS) web presence on the UWSA Intranet, where we will strive to keep you informed about our latest initiatives, updates, and developments in the ever-evolving world of information security. OIS’s primary responsibility is to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of our valuable information assets and to foster a culture of security awareness and resilience across our workforce.

Clearly, the landscape of cyber threats and risks are always evolving, posing significant challenges to organizations of all sizes and industries. OIS’s team of security professionals works relentlessly to implement robust security measures, monitor for potential threats, and respond to incidents in a swift and effective manner. We continuously adapt our strategies and tactics to stay ahead of the curve and protect UW System’s most critical assets.

Please explore our web pages to learn more about our information security policies, guidelines, and best practices that help us maintain the highest level of security. As our currently small internal page matures, you will find a wealth of resources to educate yourself on current cybersecurity trends, threats, and solutions. We believe that a well-informed community is a key factor in our collective success in safeguarding our digital ecosystem. If you have any questions or require assistance, please do not hesitate to contact the team.
