Information Security

About Us

King Khalid University is continually developing, maintaining, and improving its IT infrastructure and applications to support the creation, storage, modification and exchange of data. These IT systems are the principles of efficiency and pillars of effectiveness that mirror the university's operations. Therefore, we have a substantial responsibility to develop appropriate protection to maintain IT systems and secure information assets. Because adequately secured information is critical to the safety and privacy of University employees and organizational units, King Khalid University's Administration established a department for information security.
