to bring the CISO closer to IT members at part of a team, so we view this
as a positive change. At "dotted line" reporting the the Vice Chancellor
remains for purposes of governance and oversight, incident management, and
audit.  The CISO also has reporting requirements to a multi-campus
cross-functional governance council as well as a committee of the Board of
