The Office of Information Security (or OIS) establishes, implements, and maintains a University-wide security program. We protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of Penn State’s information assets from unauthorized use, access, disclosure, modification, damage, or loss. Our office remains committed to keeping sensitive information safe from ongoing cyber threats. Penn State’s information is valuable. We’ll help you understand the sensitivity of that information and teach you how to protect it.
