Network Security and OxCERT

Responsibility for network security within the University lies with the University of Oxford Computer Emergency Response Team (OxCERT). Based within the Networks and Telecommunications Group within the University's IT Services department, the team exists primarily to ensure the security of the University backbone network.

Within the University, OxCERT interact chiefly with IT Support Staff (ITSS). End users should contact their local ITSS or the IT Services General Help Centre for support, although links to some security-related resources are provided below.
