Description: The Incident Response Web Service will enhance communication about network blocks placed by the University Information Policy and Security Offices.

  • Phase I: Create central resource for network blocks
  • Phase II: Provide unblock ability for IT staff
  • Phase III: Provide self-service unblock for end users
  • Phase IV: Combine file sharing website
  • Phase V: Add automation to incident report processing
  • Phase VI: Add reports, graphs, trends, etc.

Milestones and status:

  • October 23, 2007: Phases I and II go live.
  • August 7, 2008: Phases III and IV go live.
  • January 2009: Phases V and VI go live.


  • Increase effectiveness of UITS Support Center staff in identifying blocked network connections
  • Dramatically decrease the delay from the time a user's computer is rebuilt until it is unblocked
  • Streamline the University Information Policy Office's response to unblock requests
