Re: Where does NAC Admin Land at Your EDU?

Our Network Services team has primary responsibility for our student NAC
(also Bradford). They handle system maintenance, integration, policy
creation, and tier 3 support. Our help desk handles tier 1/2 support.
Ideally, our InfoSec team should be involved in the policy approval
process, but it's historically been ranked too low for us to handle, so
Network takes care of the whole show.

I am thinking about making an effort to move most if not all of these
responsibilities under one area.  My question is, where do all of these
responsibilities rest at your institutions?

Telecommunications and Network Services is responsible for the overall
maintenance and operation of the system.  This includes Tier 2/3 support
issues from users that cannot be solved by the help desk, which handles
front line (Tier 1/2) support, assistance with manual registration of
devices, etc.  The security team handles day-to-day operations as far as
quarantining hosts, dealing with the users whose devices are involved in
incidents.  Our communications department is responsible for writing all
the public facing content within the system.
