Information Security strives to deliver and maintain an integrated information security program that safeguards the University’s information assets against unauthorized use, disclosure, modification, damage or loss and supports the University’s strategic goals and priorities.

Each member of the University community has a responsibility to safeguard the information assets entrusted to us. UT's security awareness program will better prepare all of us to fulfill this responsibility and to strengthen our defenses against future attacks. Adopting behaviors that protect information benefits the University, and can benefit you and your family, as well. Security awareness at the University is provided by KnowBe4. Access to the training videos can be accessed through the MyUTampa portal and by clicking on the KnowBe4 icon.

A comprehensive security program is accomplished through developing information security policies and robust data protection procedures, completing recurring security and compliance reviews, assisting campus departments with resolving information security challenges, implementing technical measures to protect campus resources, promoting a ‘culture’ of information security awareness and developing mechanisms to react proactively to incidents and events that endanger the University’s information assets.
