Shared Responsibility Model
A shared responsibility model is a framework used to define and clarify the responsibilities of various roles when it comes to securing and managing resources in an enterprise environment. This model helps to foster collaborations while establishing clear descriptions and expectations for security, compliance, and operational tasks.
The specific division of responsibilities will vary depending on the service. The UITS team has committed to documenting and sharing these responsibilities for our services to ensure security and compliance requirements are effectively met. In summary, a shared responsibility model is a key component of service delivery, emphasizing that IT security is a collaborative effort across multiple responsible parties, with each having distinct roles and responsibilities.
