Security Incident Report Form

Report incidents to the University's Information Technology Security and Policy Office via the form below. Reports should be made as soon as possible and no later than 24 hours from the time the incident is identified. Upon receipt of the report, the Information Technology Security and Policy Office will inform all appropriate University officials. Since the involvement of law enforcement in lost or stolen equipment is especially time-critical, lost or stolen electronic devices and media must also be reported directly to the UVa Police Department. If the incident did not occur in the Charlottesville-Albemarle area, it should be reported to the appropriate police jurisdiction instead.
