OIT Security

About Us

The Office of Information Security Team is here for Morgan State University and its community. We are charged with securing the information technology assets throughout the University, including those who use these resources. Each member of the team brings decades of IT experience. We continue to challenge ourselves and our colleagues in incorporating information security into all they do. We take security very seriously.

But the reality is that we cannot do it alone. We believe IT security is everyone's responsibility. Much like driving a car, drivers, or users of IT resources, must operate the machines in safe manner. While we do not need driver's licenses to surf the information superhighway, we do need to be aware of the dangers and internet etiquette. It takes a village to secure a village!

Relaxed security: 
Ever drive home after a long day and not remember how you got home. It's not that you were driving illegally or incorrectly. You were driving safely, keeping your eyes open and watching for those hazards that may present themselves, but, you were doing this subconsciously. This is relaxed driving. Relaxed security is like this. By getting to a point where you are using security methods unconsciously, you are practicing relaxed security. This is how we envision all of you "driving" the information superhighway.
