In a dynamic field growing in size and complexity, Uniac provides the perfect balance of experience and up to the minute sector expertise.
There are several distinct aspects to Uniac’s IT offerings:
As you would expect we are strong on the fundamentals such as business continuity and IT security, including network security, while being sensitive to the business requirements, including openness, that are inherent in universities’ operations. In particular we can offer support in responding to the recent UUK Policy Briefing on Cyber Security. The delivery of IT is changing enormously - we are adept and experienced in auditing virtual and cloud operating environments.
Of course there is much more to IT than security and delivery. From a user perspective we can advise on how IT is being used - safely and effectively - to streamline processes; deliver services more efficiently and effectively; and support the student experience.
On IT and non-IT audits alike our audit software allows us to test whole populations extremely quickly and efficiently, pulling out exceptions for further examination and delivering robust assurance.
