The Security Operations Center (SOC) investigates and coordinates the settlement of information security incidents, where employees, students and/or systems of VU Amsterdam are involved. This counts for incidents that seem to originate from within VU Amsterdam and incidents where VU Amsterdam is the victim. Within VU Amsterdam, SOC is also responsible for providing information in the field of Information Security and will give, asked or unasked for, advice to employees and students.

Our policy for Responsible Disclosure is by no means an invitation to actively scan our systems for weak spots. We carefully monitor the network ourselves.

Nevertheless we appreciate to cooperate with you to protect our clients and systems in the best possible way.

Report a security incident
In case of (suspicion of) a security breach, immediately contact the SOC.
