Mission of IT Security at UZH
The University of Zurich ensures the protection of information that is of vital importance for teaching, research, and the other diverse activities of the university. The IT Security Office of the University of Zurich develops the necessary guidelines and framework conditions to ensure adequate protection mechanisms for the information technologies used.
The Computer Security Incident Response Team of UZH (UZH-CSIRT) is a working group consisting of the IT Security Office, specialists from the ZI, and IT managers from the institutes, who act as coordinators in solving specific IT security incidents (e.g. new security holes in certain applications or operating systems, new types of virus spreading, PCs sending spam or targeted attacks), publish warnings of security holes, and offer solutions.
The CSIRT is currently being restructured. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the IT security officer: Contact
