Information Security Incident Managment
The purpose of information security incident management is to outline procedures and guidelines for reporting responding to Geneseo information security incidents. This procedure allows for a coordinated response from the Information Security Program Team, and others involved in an investigation and a follow-up on reported information security incidents.
An information security incident is considered to be any adverse event that threatens the confidentiality, integrity or availability of Geneseo’s information resources. If you suspect an information security incident, immediate action should be taken to report and isolate the problem from the campus network when appropriate. Powering down the computer or disconnecting it from the campus network will stop any potentially threatening activity if you think the computer has been compromised. If the incident requires immediate attention, call the CIT HelpDesk at 585-245-5588 or University Police during non-business hours at 585-245-5651. Otherwise, fill out and submit this form. SUNY Geneseo also has a Silent Witness Form to provide you with a simple, risk-free way to anonymously and confidentially report activities that may involve criminal, unethical, or otherwise inappropriate behavior in violation of the policies of SUNY Geneseo and the State of New York. To anonymously and confidentially file a report, use the Silent Witness Form. Please fill out as much information as possible about how you can be contacted, and about the nature of the incident and then press the "Submit Form" button. You may leave items blank if they do not apply to you. If you have questions or problems with this form, please contact CIT via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 585-245-5577.
