Creating an IT Security Baseline

Tuesday, April 16 | 2:15PM–3:00PM | Salon A
Session Type: Professional Development
The UW–Madison Office of Campus Information Security has worked with the campus community to develop a baseline information systems security standard that's intended to help departments on campus create a measurable and minimally acceptable baseline security program. The technical controls have been developed collaboratively with campus departments and vetted through various on- and off-campus groups. The baseline security standard outlines security controls all campus IT departments should implement including controls for endpoint security, access control, physical security, policy and awareness, and application security for custom web applications.
