Scaturro named University information technology security officer

Anthony Scaturro has been named University information technology security officer in Princeton's Office of Information Technology . His appointment is effective Nov. 1.

Scaturro will be responsible for overall technical policy direction on University information technology security issues. Working with the offices of public safety and general counsel, he will consult with University groups that have specific security concerns and coordinate with departments inside and outside the Office of Information Technology that have responsibility for the infrastructure needed to support the University's overall information technology goals. The new position was created as part of a reorganization initiated by Betty Leydon, vice president for information technology and chief information officer, after she joined the administration in the summer of 2001. It was recommended for funding in the University's 2002-03 operating budget last spring by the Priorities Committee of the Council of the Princeton University Community.
