Anyone with knowledge of a security breach of electronic records at Stevens shall immediately notify the appropriate Data Authority, which is the individual or unit with disposition control over either electronic records or systems containing electronic records. If you are unsure who the appropriate Data Authority contact the Help Desk directly.
  2. The Data Authority is then responsible for immediately notifying the university's IT Help Desk at or by calling (201)216-5500 for assistance.

If a breach has occurred, the Data Authority, in consultation with Helpdesk, members of the IT staff, and other appropriate administrators, is responsible for notifying the affected individual(s) without undue delay.
