The Security, Identity & IT Business Continuity group protects Weill Cornell Medicine's reputation, brand, and business operations through policies, procedures, and technologies that secure our information systems and ensure their resiliency in a disaster. The college produces large amounts of data on a daily basis involving patients, students, research subjects, financial accounts, and other sensitive information. This team works to prevent data from being compromised and becoming the next news story. We also try to ensure that security systems do not unnecessarily harm productivity. We seek to accurately maintain key identification data about the WCM community to speed and simplify secure system access and to enhance communications and reporting.
