Information Security

InfoSec Team

We got the h4x.

The Information Security Team works to ensure the safety of student data stored on and transferred through our network by enforcing strict security standards on all Student Affairs servers and workstations.  The team performs intrusive and non-intrusive scanning of systems and audits of servers to protect confidential data. We closely scrutinize infected workstations and staff computers to pinpoint the cause of infection and minimize the amount of data loss.

Additionally, the team continually works with our customer support and outreach teams to educate students and staff on security awareness and safe computing practices, taking both reactive and proactive approaches to maintain security and protect the network.

What We Do

Break applications

Write code

Make policy

Handle security incidents

InfoSec Analysts carry out security testing on applications developed all over campus. The InfoSec team writes code to improve our intrusion detection systems, compile meaningful statistics about UC Berkeley's security posture, and audit our processes to keep student data safe. InfoSec works with campus policy makers to define policy that affects all students in the residential halls and on campus. The InfoSec Analysts work to mitigate compromises and vulnerabilities through network traffic analysis and consulting with campus staff.
