Texas state law requires that the University of Texas at Austin maintain an inventory of all University IT assets and confidential University data as part of its comprehensive Information Security Program.
Historically, this inventory has been maintained by local IT support staff on campus, but as wireless networking has become more pervasive and reliable, many faculty and staff are no longer connecting to traditional wired networks. As a result, the University must rely more on assistance from faculty and staff to effectively maintain these required inventories.
