Information Security

Our staff monitors and responds to threats against Teachers College’s systems, along with using threat assessment and a risk-based approach to mitigate the threat or risk to the college. The mission of Information Security is to support the goals of Teachers College by safeguarding information and assets from unauthorized disclosure, use, modification, or loss.

One of the primary goals of Information Security is to develop proactive technical and non-technical measures to help identify and prevent security risks and provide effective response in cases where those measures fail.
