The Cyber Risk and Compliance Committee serves to provide oversight and support of IT Security across all University of Colorado Campuses.  It will strive to:

  • Align cybersecurity and compliance strategies with university priorities
  • Formalize processes for management monitoring of high-risk issues (e.g., standard process for reporting, mitigation, and monitoring) and creation of risk register
  • Clearly define what campuses are responsible for versus what system administration is responsible for
  • Coordinate cybersecurity operations among security offices and facilitate knowledge and resource-sharing across campuses
  • Identify and oversee systemwide and shared security and compliance initiatives
