ITAC Subcommittees

Information Security Subcommittee

Effective information security is crucial to the entire University community to ensure the protection of personal and health information, computer systems, and vital University assets. The Information Security Subcommittee of the ITAC will advise the Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), Vice Chancellor and CIO (VC/CIO), Chancellor, and Chancellor’s Cabinet on issues of security, privacy, and risk reduction. The ISS may recommend information security strategies that are integrated with the University’s overall risk management programs. The Subcommittee is responsible for recommending measures to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the University’s information technology resources and data while at the same time preserving access and use of these critical resources in a collaborative environment for teaching, learning, research, and administration.

Data Governance Subcommittee

Institutional data is a critical University asset and consists of all data, excluding research data generated as work product, that is created, stored, sent, or received by any and all members of the University community. The amount of institutional data is expanding rapidly, and its potential value is increasing as new systems and technologies come into use. The University has set goals for institutional data, yet existing policies and procedures provide insufficient guidance on how the University can accomplish these goals in a responsible, compliant, and ethical manner. These goals include:

  1. Unlocking the potential of institutional data;
  2. Supporting innovation in the use of institutional data in education, research, and operations;
  3. Making institutional data broadly available to all who need it; and
  4. Advancing a culture of data-informed decision making.

The DGS will help achieve these goals by providing  ITAC, the Office of the CIO, the Office of Policy Development and Management, the Office of Compliance, Investigations & Ethics, the University’s Privacy Officer and other key University units with expert advice and counsel on any and all matters related to the management, security and governance of enterprise data and related systems, to include identifying the need for new or revised policies, procedures, and controls for institutional data as well as best practices to protect individual privacy.
