ITS maintains certain policies with regard to the use and security of its computer systems, networks, and information resources. All users of these facilities, including technology developers, end users, and resource administrators, are expected to be familiar with these policies and the consequences of violation.

These policies define how ITS will approach security, how students, faculty, and staff are expected to approach security, and how certain situations will be handled. Laws, policies, and regulations not specific to information technology may also apply.
