IT Security

We are charged with protecting supported computers and networks from malicious computer attacks, service interruptions, and network harassment. As such, we work to:

  • Secure, maintain, patch, and monitor supported hardware and software;
  • Identify, contain and, when possible, prevent the propagation of malicious network traffic that impacts departmental and campus networks;
  • Educate, consult with, and provide tools for supported units to assist them with protecting their information assets.

Additionally, we assist with ensuring that information-related laws, regulations, and policies are adhered to in a consistent manner.

For general campus guidelines and safe computing information, please visit the UC Davis Security Home Page.


There is no additional charge for this service.
