Information Security

IT Security oversees Bowdoin's efforts to protect its computing and information assets and to comply with information-related laws, regulations and policies.


  • IT Security's approach to security is more proactive than reactive, although priority response is given to incidents that have institution-level impact.
  • The current focus is securing systems that affect a majority of the college, including administrative systems and the campus data network.  Special Priority is given to systems containing data classified as restricted.

The Help Desk can provide assistance with securing or repairing your computer.
