Cornell's IT policies exist to maintain, secure, and ensure the legal and appropriate use of the university's information technology infrastructure. Security and privacy policies work together to provide the campus community with a high-quality, trusted, and secure campus computing environment. They also help protect and secure property interests, data, and intellectual property.

The development, formulation, and promulgation of university-level IT policies requires coordination with the University Policy Office. See Policy 4.1, Formulation and Issuance of University Policies.
