About Us

In order to address the protection of UW Medicine’s electronic information systems and data assets, UW Medicine must implement and maintain a sensible and responsible program for information security. This Information Security Program provides services and activities that support the important and difficult business challenge of protecting data.

Included in our program are the necessary elements of information systems and data security required for UW Medicine to meet its regulatory and contractual compliance obligations. Beyond mandatory compliance requirements and risk management objectives, our program is also designed to support UW Medicine’s high standards and commitment to the preservation and protection of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of UW Medicine’s information assets.

UW Medicine ITS Security also works closely with all UW Medicine entities and the Office of the Chief Information Security Officer , CISO, for the University of Washington.

Our Mission

To support UW Medicine’s own high standards
and commitment to the preservation and protection
of confidentiality, integrity, and availability of UW Medicine’s
information assets.
