Procedures

If it is determined that a threat is critical, the offending computer(s) will be blocked and notification will be sent to the departmental security contact(s) via email or telephone that the block has occurred. If the threat is not immediate, notification of the threat will be sent to the departmental security contact(s) via email. If a response is not received within 4 hours indicating that the department is taking action to mitigate the threat, the offending computer(s) will be blocked. The departmental security contact(s) may request the assistance of a Technical Support Specialist in remedying the situation. In either case, campus network and security personnel will work with the departmental security contact(s) and/or the system administrator to ensure that the computer(s) are properly secured. If a block has been put in place it will be removed when both the department and IT security personnel agree that the problem causing the incident has been successfully addressed.
