Chief Information Security Officer Chris Shull heads the Office of Information Security and leads security efforts across all campuses, schools, and departments.
Chris prides himself on keeping information security simple, or at least understandable. For more than 25 years, he has been leading and transforming information technology, information security, and data privacy practices in diverse companies and organizations.
Chris’ priorities include working closely with stakeholders across the university to visibly and transparently focus the Office of Information Security on critical initiatives and operational activities to support the university’s complex research, healthcare, and teaching missions through projects like MyDay, One Campus, Secure WUSM, and many more.
Our team is comprised of talented professionals who work to secure WashU systems and data. Our priorities include:
- training and awareness
- adding and supporting necessary security features
- continuous monitoring of threats to our system
- compliance with various standards and practices that empower the great work of this institution
Our mission is to build a sustainable information security program that balances the need to protect with the need to support the missions of education, research, and clinical care. Below, you can watch Chris present on how our office works to further our mission.
