Supervisors and administrators play a key role in maintaining systems and data integrity by monitoring when users become inactive or leave their department.
Therefore, it is the urgent responsibility of the department head or department administrator to directly notify FOIT Security when an employee, affiliate, temporary or student has left their department. To expedite and streamline the process, please notify us by email as soon as possible, with subsequent submittal of a Security Access form optional. This email should include the name and NetID of the user and their last day in the department.
FOIT Security also removes user access to administrative systems based upon
- Regular Faculty and Staff Information Systems status reports designating users as "terminated", prompting administrative systems lockout.
- Expiration of NetIDs after a user has separated from the university (see it.northwestern.edu/netid/expiration.html).
We rely on supervisors and administrators to conduct regular reviews of user access and authorization to help secure the University's systems and data. If you have any updates, questions or concerns, please contact FOIT Security at:
