Enterprise services for units in support of the IT-28 policy

Indiana University's Cyber Risk Mitigation Responsibilities (IT-28) policy applies to all units and organizations on any IU campus that make use of the university's information technology infrastructure. The policy calls for a formal review of plans every two years.

The goal of IT-28 is to ensure that the IU community minimizes, to the greatest extent practicable, the unnecessary creation of cyber risks, while also enabling the productive work of all units. This requires a balanced approach to (a) activities that create cyber risks, and (b) activities that can help mitigate them. Both enabling and mitigating are essential for the diverse IT services required for the university's research, education, and service mission. The policy creates a framework and procedures to formally review and document units' cyber risk mitigation approaches and responsibilities.

The following is a guide to IU enterprise services that may best meet the needs of your department or unit in support of the IT-28 policy. For technical help with any of the services listed, contact your campus Support Center. For assistance with IT-28 questions, send email to it28help@iu.edu.
