Incident Response

A Service of IET

The Information Security team helps the campus and IET through training and consulting on security incidents. After a severe incident, the team will help prevent further damage to the campus by working with the departments and any outside support (such as the police) to remediate the incident, thus staying compliant with laws and regulations.

  • The team works respectfully and professionally--with both outside law enforcement agencies and with campus departments and IT-- to help analyze, investigate, mitigate, remediate, and notify about incidents.
  • UC Davis departments can use the team's expertise, and focused knowledge about information security, to help resolve major security incidents.
  • The team can be a single point of contact when dealing with law enforcement agencies. This increases continuity and lowers the burden on local IT departments.
