Incident Reporting

Reporting of information security incidents is necessary to ensure that a proper and timely response can be initiated to control, eliminate, investigate and document events that could potentially disrupt the operation of the university or compromise university data.

Reporting also enhances the awareness of trends in security incidents that indicate the need for adjustments in the University's security program.
