Information Security Glossary

Produced by the Information Security Office (ISO)

Glossary summary

This glossary is provided for our users to help them better work with the ISO and to inform their understanding of information security in general. Terms are derived from NIST controls and other security governance drivers which also provide the framework for university policies. Knowing these terms will help information resource owners, information resource custodians, and Level 2 IRE's in particular but are useful for anyone who wants to know more about how information security is defined.
