The Information Security Office advises risk owners on how to mitigate risk within ECU’s environments. When risks cannot be suitably mitigated, a risk acceptance is needed to properly document the residual risk. This facilitates the risk management process as it illuminates important risk areas.

If a technology handles sensitive information but does not support Single Sign On (SSO) or Multifactor Authentication (MFA), request an exception by attaching a completed SSO/MFA Exception Request to this service ticket. For other risk acceptance situations, submit the Standard Risk Assessment form as part of this service ticket. See attachments, this page.

Once this service request and appropriate forms are submitted, our team will contact you.
