Every day, thousands of cyberattacks target the university. Sound serious? It is.

The ITS Information Security and Privacy Office is responsible for protecting the FSU community and infrastructure from cyberattacks. And we do not take our job lightly. The university houses an abundance of critical and sensitive information, and the safeguarding of this data and the technical infrastructure behind it is vital to the viability and success of FSU. From 24/7 monitoring to on-demand training, we are transforming the campus community and network into a steadfast line of defense against modern digital threats.

For more information on our role at FSU, see the Information Security and Privacy Office charter.
