Cornell policies relating to IT services and their use

Cornell's IT policies exist to maintain, secure, and ensure 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 University Policy 4.1, Formulation and Issuance of University Policies.
