UF’s IT governance committees have developed three new policies, and updated three others, to provide guidance and define responsibilities for safeguarding information. All IT-based university policies and their supporting standards and documentation may be found at https://it.ufl.edu/policies/.
• Biometric Identification
• Monitoring of IT Resources
• Physical Security of IT Resources
• Acceptable Use of Information Technology
• Incident Response
• Risk Management
Each policy was developed by the Information Security Advisory Committee and vetted by the other committees that make up IT governance at UF. The policy drafts were also offered for review to UF’s Office of the General Counsel, the University IT Committee of the Faculty Senate, college IT directors, and other constituents. UFIT will reach out to community members responsible for actions under these policies and offer assistance in meeting the new requirements. Anyone with questions about the six policies listed here, or the full list on the IT Policies webpage, are welcome to email the UF Information Security Office.
