Account Access & Permissions

Service Description

SVSU places high importance on security of technology and data resources.  One security measure requires individual user accounts with strong/complex passwords and to have proper access to data and resources. Most resources will require a supervisor or department leader to issue/approve the request.

Employees that are hired, change roles or responsibilities, or leave university employment, often have different kinds of technology access/permissions that may need to change.  This may include a change or revocation of access to different resources, change of computer systems and/or relocation of equipment. To ensure smooth transitions, it is important for supervisors to consider and request changes in advance.
