With the universities and colleges more information-based, there is a growing dependence on and vulnerability of network and information systems, presenting a more serious issue of security in relation to the information systems of the universities and colleges. More and more universities and colleges are applying for the outsourcing of information security service in the hope that the state-of-the-art technology and management models with information security service providers can be used to enhance the managerial level of the organizational entity, to enjoy more professional service, and to find smart, flexible, well-conceived solutions to the known and unknown threats against security. While it brings benefit to the universities and colleges, the outsourcing of information security service holds in store a lot of risks.
