Digital Security

The NYU IT Office of Information Security group (OIS) provides a wide variety of services to the general NYU community that help minimize the risk of a security incident. It is our mission to protect NYU's computer network and the data that is transmitted over that network. OIS meets with NYU departments to discuss their security concerns, provides consultations on new projects, and educates University employees on how to safely and securely navigate NYU resources.

IT Policies

The IT policy and compliance team develops and maintains a variety of policies, guidelines, and other documents to educate the community regarding the University's computers, data, and other information technology resources and the responsibilities of community members when using those resources, including compliance responsibilities.
