What is information security?

Information technology is woven into the fabric of the university and into our daily lives. The loss, corruption, or exposure of information can interfere with IU's mission, damage IU's reputation, or result in financial penalties. For individuals, there's the threat of financial loss and identity theft. Information Security and Privacy Program is IU's strategy to promote safeguards for protecting IU's people, data, and IT operations.
