System Administration, and UTIMCO in their efforts to establish and maintain information security programs that effectively reduce risk and secure the information assets under its stewardship against unauthorized use, disclosure, modification, damage or loss; are documented and verifiable; and meet regulatory compliance requirements.

Systemwide Compliance

The Systemwide Compliance Program supports The University of Texas System’s academic and health institutions as they work to promote a culture of ethical behavior and to ensure compliance with all applicable policies, laws, and regulations governing higher education, research, and healthcare.
