UW-Madison Information Security Team (MIST)
The UW-Madison Information Security Team (MIST) is collaborative group of campus IT staff, management, and others with a common interest in promoting information security at UW Madison. Members provide communication, guidance and leadership for campus-wide security issues and initiatives and serve an advisory group to the UW-Madison Chief Information Security Officer.
MIST Collaborative Guidelines
- Support the IT Security Principles of:
- Security is a shared responsibility
- Security is part of the development life cycle
- Security is asset management
- Security is a common understanding
- Actively participate in reviewing and discussing IT Security Strategy, IT Policies and IT security tools and processes.
- Communicate broadly and deeply within your campus organization as well as with the CISO and UW-Madison IT Security Team.
- Consider and balance broad cross-campus perspectives and local perspectives.
- Be respectful and inquisitive of differing options.
- Be supportive internally and externally of decisions established by this group.
Sponsors: The sponsors consist of the CIO, the Chairperson of MTAG and the UW-Madison CISO. They are responsible for reviewing and responding to advisory topics provided to MIST and identifying priorities for this group.
Chairpersons: UW-MIST will be co-chaired by a member of the UW-Madison IT community and by the UW-Madison Associate CISO or member of the IT-Security Team. The campus community chairperson will be elected by the voting membership and will serve a two-year term. Voting will be based on community nominations. The chairpersons are responsible for setting the agenda, recoding and communicating decisions and reporting back to the sponsors.
