The IT governance bodies

The four boards of IT governance deal with different areas of information technology and digitalisation at TU Braunschweig. They are strongly connected with each other and work together very closely. Particular attention is paid to IT security, for which the Chief Information Security Officer has the main responsibility. The department in charge is headed by the Senior Vice President for Digitalisation and Sustainability.
