What does UISO do? Serve and Protect: Threat and Vulnerability Management
Because Georgetown University considers the protection of University information a critical priority,we endeavor to protect by providing critical information security services and education to the GU community, equipping students, faculty and staff with the tools to better protect computers and data.
Password Change Requirement (twice per year)
April 2014: UISO celebrates the community's participation in the password change initiative. More than 29,000 GU community members changed passwords. In six months, UISO will remind students, faculty, staff and alumni to change their passwords again.
We are grateful for our users' partnership in this endeavor to protect GU information, data and personal identities.
