For Local IT Support

If you provide IT Support in your own local department, please know that IRT is here to help you.

  • IRT holds monthly meetings for you to attend: the School of Medicine Support operations Meeting (also known as SoM SOM), on the 3rd Thursday of the month.
  • We strongly recommend that you use the Remedy/HelpSU system to document your own work and to facilitate routing of tickets between support providers.
  • We also recommend that you take full advantage of the freely-available Essential Stanford Software (BigFix, Sophos AntiVirus, etc.), the various discounted software from vendors like Microsoft and Adobe, and Stanford's discounted pricing with Apple, Dell, and now Lenovo.



  • Data and Device Attestation — A link to the survey where users can add or change their attested data usage and all the devices used to access Stanford information.
  • — "Am I Encrypted" is the SoM site that will tell users, based on SUID, whether or not their attested devices are compliant. 
  • — Stanford IT Services' page that walks users through the encryption process, with options for each operating system.


Secure Computing:

  • — The University's ITS Secure Computing homepage, with tons of helpful links.
  • Minimum Security Standards — An updated, clearly laid out description of the University's minimum security standards for endpoints, servers, and applications.
  • — The University's new data classification categories (High Risk, Moderate Risk, Low Risk).
