Wake Forest University

InfoSec / Information Security

We serve the Wake Forest community by establishing guidelines, standards, and policies that protect the security, confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information assets and systems that are created, accessed, managed, and/or owned and controlled by the University. Some examples of what the InfoSec team does include handling phishing, classifying data and confidential information, authorizing VPN access, and more. 

Our mission

The InfoSec team operates under the principles of confidentiality, integrity and availability in support of the pursuit of the University’s goals of teaching, research, and service.

Confidentiality limits information access to authorized users. 

Integrity protects information against unauthorized modification. 

Availability ensures that information is accessible when needed to conduct University business.
