About IT Policies

The IT Policy & Compliance team develops and maintains policies and guidelines for the NYU community regarding the University's computers, data, and cybersecurity best practices. It is your responsibility as an NYU community member to know and abide by IT and NYU policies, regardless of whether you have actually read them. It is therefore a good idea to familiarize yourself with the policies and other information on this page.
