Security Management and Planning

Why is Security Awareness Important?​

In today's global economy collaboration with domestic and international partners  is essential to remaining competitive and to advance education, research, and science.​

Facilitates collaboration and the exchange of information in a safe, efficient and legal manner to minimize risk to KU faculty, staff, students, research, technology, and facilities.

Understanding key export and security concepts will assist in securing resources, information, technology, and individuals on our campuses while protecting national security and reducing overall risk to KU.

Improves our work environment at all KU campuses.

Security management and planning is the identification of an organization's assets (including people, buildings, machines, systems and information assets), followed by the development, documentation, and implementation of policies and procedures for protecting these assets.

An organization uses such security management procedures as asset and information classification, threat assessment, risk assessment, and risk analysis to identify threats, categorize assets, and rate system vulnerabilities so we can implement effective controls and countermeasures.

Contact the GO&S staff to assist in evaluating information security needs and establishing necessary measures to comply with contractual and governmental regulatory requirements.

If you need assistance on export compliance related topics, KU faculty, staff, and students can also receive assistance by sending a message to, by calling one of the staff members, or submitting the webform at this link Export / Security Analysis or Assistance.
