Security Risk Assessment

UNLV is taking steps to strengthen its defenses against cyber attacks and breaches. As a result, the university’s Information Security Office (ISO) offers a security risk assessment service (ISORA) to identify and mitigate IT-related risks for all campus technology services.

Protect sensitive UNLV data and technology resources

A security risk assessment identifies and prioritizes threats, vulnerabilities, and security issues involving technology resources. It not only protects information stored electronically from damage or data loss but also prevents potential security problems. All UNLV faculty and staff are able to get a security risk assessment for the technology services listed below.
