Information Security

VMI’s Information Technology Security Officer (ITSO) is responsible for developing and implementing the Institute’s information security plan in accordance with state law.  This includes the development of a security awareness training program designed to inform the user community about how to best secure their data.

The Information Security portion of the VMI website is designed to be a comprehensive resource for VMI cadets, faculty, staff, and classified employees, with answers to some of the most common information security questions.  If you have any additional security questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at extension 7643. If you would like to report a potential information security violation, contact the ITSO.

REMEMBER: VMI’s IT Department will never ask for your password.
