Security Incident Report

If you suspect an IT security incident, or theft or misues of information or technology resources, immediate action should be taken to mitigate the problem and safeguard the campus network.

Report Procedure

For a suspected IT security incident:

  1. Disconnect from the campus network (disconect from wifi or network connection) to stop any potential threatening activity. We reccomend you DO NOT power down, as it will destroy forensic evidence.
  2. Contact the Solution Center
  3. Report the incident

Fill out as much information as possible about your contact information and the details of the incident. If you have questions or problems with this form, e-mail IT Security at or call 515-294-4000.

For activities that may involve criminal, unethical, or otherwise inappropriate behavior in violation of the policies of Iowa State University, Board of Regents, and the State of Iowa, Iowa State University has a Compliance and Ethics Hotline to provide you with a risk-free way to anonymously and confidentially report the incident.
