Information Security

The Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE) is committed to protecting the information that is critical to teaching, research, and the University’s many varied activities, our business operation, and the communities we support, including students, faculty, staff members, and the public. These protections may be governed by legal, contractual, or University policy considerations.

HGSE is equally committed to preserving an environment that encourages academic and research collaboration through the responsible use of information technology resources. Find out about Harvard’s research mission and the information security policies that protect research information.

Everyone at Harvard has a responsibility for proper handling and protection of confidential information as set out in University and School security policies. For questions about security policy interpretation and application, implementation steps, or to find out about information security services that are offered at Harvard, please contact HGSE's Information Security Officer (ISO) through the IT Service Center.
