Penetration Testing

To properly safeguard and secure the university's information technology assets, the IT Security office periodically conducts assessments, audits and penetration testing.

Only with knowledge of these vulnerabilities can departments apply security fixes or other compensating controls to improve the security posture of our overall environment or to meet certain regulatory or audit requirements.

One of the best ways to assess a system's strengths is to actively evaluate a resource's security using a combination of automated and manual methods to attempt or breach the security of a system.

Please call the IT Security Office (5-6332) or email: it-security@uiowa.edu for more information on this service.
