About Us

Information is the lifeblood of the University of Arizona. Our instructors share information with students in classrooms. Our researchers create new information in our many labs and centers. Our outreach programs enhance the State of Arizona by sharing information with our communities. We live in an information age.

The UA Information Security program promotes a culture of information security and privacy. We provide colleges, departments, and individuals with tools and guidance to help them protect the information that they create, collect, and share.
