Maintaining the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and computer systems is of perticular importance for the KIT. Therefore, the joint task force ASDUR (Arbeitsstab IT-Sicherheit, Datenschutz und Rechtskonformität - Task Force for IT Security, Data Protection and Law Conformity) decided to compose an "Information Security Policy of the KIT".
The intention of this policy is to emphasise the importance of IT security to all members of the KIT. The policy states clearly the full dedication to and support for IT security by the executive board, committees and organizational units of the KIT.
The Information Security Policy of the KIT has been adopted for the KIT by the executive board and has become effecive on the 1st of October 2009.
