Information Ownership

It is the Information Owner’s role to convey that security is everyone’s job and to ensure security strategies are in place at all times. Information Owners set the tone for a security-minded environment. Security is comprised of the behaviors of people, business processes, and technological controls. The University of North Texas System has established an Information Security Regulation and Handbook, based upon Texas Administrative Code requirements, which states that information owners must protect their data.

 

The Information Ownership Guide sets forth the responsibilities of information owners. The documents below apply to all information owners at the University of North Texas System member institutions and System Administration. If you have been designated as an information owner, please take a moment to review and be familiar with these documents.
