A successful information security program relies on the shared responsibilities of many individuals within the organization to safeguard University information resources. The following entities support the information security program at UNC Charlotte.
- The OneIT Security & Compliance Office is responsible for managing the University's information security program. This office also facilitates and monitors compliance to the information security policy and the associated standards and guidelines.
- The Information Assurance committee is responsible for the oversight of information security services, technologies, safeguards, policies, and controls campus-wide.
- Information Security Liaisons (ISLs) act as intermediaries between their respective units and OneIT and assist with implementing information security policy, standards, and guidelines.
- In addition to Information Security Liaisons, each college designates one person to serve as the Data Security Officer (DSO) for that college. The DSO assists faculty and staff with Data Security Plans and is responsible for ensuring that each Data Security Plan complies with all university policies and procedures. The DSO in a college may assume the role of Information Security Liaison.
