The GSW Computer Incident Response Team is charged with investigation and coordination of incidents where sensitive institutional or personal data is suspected to have been compromised. Serious computer incidents involving the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information technology assets must be reported to the GSW Computer Incidence Response Team (CIRT).
In the event that sensitive and confidential information was compromised, the leader of the CIRT for that incident in conjunction with the other team members will file a report with the Campus Information Security Officer of the incident detailing the date, time, actions taken and any other pertinent observations. The CIRT will follow the guidelines of the University System of Georgia Incident Response Plan (Appendix D of the GSW Security Plan and the USG IT Handbook).
The GSW CIRT will meet at least every April and every October starting in April of 2014. The CIRT will elect a chair and a secretary for a term of one year. There are currently no term limits. The team is composed of:
- GSW CIO
- GSW ISO
- Public Safety Representative
- Network Administrator
- University Relations Director
- IIT Computer Lab Manager
- GSW Systems Administrator
- Database Administrator
- GSW IIT Coordinator
- Human Relations Director
Additional subject matter experts may be enlisted by the chair as part of an investigation. CIRT procedures are described in Section 7.2 of the GSW Campus Acceptable Use Policy and in the GSW It Incident Response Plan.
