Information Security Consulting


The Information Security Group is available for consulting on all topics related to information security, privacy, P2P, compliance, social networks, wireless, laptop safety, and online protection. The group also consults on new and on-going security projects, and is also available for speaking at department and organizational meetings.

Computing is an essential part of our day-to-day existence. Unfortunately, cyber as well as physical threats abound, putting Brown as well as personal information at risk.

The Information Security Group (ISG) is charged with mitigating risk through the development and maintenance of Brown's information technology security strategy, IT policies and best practices, security training and awareness programs, ongoing risk assessments and compliance tasks. ISG strives to balance confidentiality (keeping private matters private), integrity (assuring that your information is complete and accurate) and availability (having timely and reliable access to your information).

ISG cannot do this alone. You play a key role in protecting information. By becoming aware of possible threats and vulnerabilities, you help to protect Brown as well as yourself. Here are some important first steps toward safe and more secure computing.
