U-M IT Strategic Initiative
Create a unified, proactive strategy to address the most serious threats to the university for information assurance, and security, privacy, and compliance.
A single, unified strategy will enable university success and ensure appropriate access to data, no matter who uses it or where it is processed or stored.
- Make it easier to keep sensitive information secure and meet compliance requirements by providing guidelines, tools, and services to the entire community, based on data or system sensitivity, not unit.
- Create security enclaves for the most sensitive data by focusing resources and control to proactively mitigate the most damaging threats in a way that provides both security and recovery.
- Consolidate physical servers throughout campus into the MiServer and MiDatabase virtual services.
- Encourage collaboration between faculty and IT to contribute to this initiative. Support research with data, pilots, and seed funding.
If you have questions or comments, or are interested in having a representative from the Office of the CIO facilitate a discussion about the plan with your team, contact the IT Strategic Planning Team at IT.Strategic.Planning@umich.edu.
