IT/IS Risk Management
The Information Technology and Information Security Risk Management program directly supports the University System of Georgia’s (USG) Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) led by the Office of Audit and Compliance.
As the USG’s dependence and interdependence on information technology (IT) continues to increase, the consequences of IT risk and threats have increased as well. Consequently, there is a potential for an unplanned event involving a failure or misuse of IT to threaten the USG’s goals and objectives. An IT risk incident has the potential to produce substantial business, reputation, compliance and operational consequences that touch a wide range of constituents.
Information Technology Services (ITS) and USG’s Information Security & ePrivacy are working to lower the daily risks that face UGS’s IT infrastructure.
