IT security

The processes in research, teaching and administration have become increasingly dependent on well-functioning information and communication technology. At the same time, the number of potential threats has increased dramatically – threats which especially endanger the availability, integrity and confidentiality of IT systems and the information they process. These terms represent the fundamental values of IT security.

The goal is to achieve and maintain a state, in which the fundamental values of IT security are guaranteed according to the specifications of the university administration and existing legal regulations, by countering potential threats to such an extent that we can live with the existing risks.
The SCC has implemented all the necessary measures to achieve this goal. However, the active participation (and vigilance) of all users is crucial for ensuring effective IT security throughout the university.
