New IT Risk, Policy, and Compliance Website
The Office of Information Technology has launched a new online resource designed to help the Rutgers community protect itself from cyberthreats and enhance the university’s digital security. 
 
The IT Risk, Policy, and Compliance website provides easy-to-access information on security programs and services, which include IT policy development, risk management, compliance program strategy, and security awareness and training services. 
 
These new webpages replace much of the RUSecure website. The RUSecure website has been decommissioned, with redirects to the appropriate resources at the IT Risk, Policy, and Compliance website or elsewhere. For a variety of security-related resources at Rutgers, please view the Rutgers IT website’s Security landing page
