Information Security Office (ISO)
The mission of the Princeton University Information Security Office (ISO) is to make information security programmatic and cultural on campus in order to support the University in its mission in teaching and research.
The ISO's comprehensive posture increases security and reduces risk while securely enabling access to information for those who need it. Supporting this mission are three pillars: an appropriate governance and policy structure; robust and scalable security architecture, solutions, and operations; and an expansive and continuous security awareness program.
As part of Princeton University's Office of Information Technology, the ISO team proactively:
- Sets strategy to build secure access protocols and network architecture
- Mitigates security risk through outreach, awareness, assessment, policy, and best practices
- Participates in the monitoring of networks and systems to protect against and detect malicious activity and ensure regulatory compliance
- Manages continuity of operations planning for critical information systems
- Responds to security breaches to contain the incident and improve protocols
