Reporting Information Security Issues

The Guide for Reporting Security Issues was developed for our Information Technology Team, but is applicable to everyone. Reporting potential information security issues is necessary to protect our computer systems/network. Seemingly harmless actions can compromise patient, student and other confidential data.

Examples of Information Security Issues

  • Installation of unapproved software
  • Passwords shared or left in obvious locations
  • Unlocked, unattended workstations
  • Alteration of UW School of Dentistry installed software
  • Computer viruses
