Collaboration with both international and domestic colleagues is a critical component of information sharing in an effort to advance education, research, science and technology here at KU. The U.S. Government has continued to see a sharp increase in the theft or illegal acquisition of information and technology resident at both companies and Universities nationwide.

GO&S can assist faculty and staff in determining if risks to univesity activities and research exist and develop strategies to protect our information.
