Computing and Data Security

Steve Boren, Unit Lead
Mark Boze, Server Administration
Nick Metzler, Desktop Support

The Computing and Data Security Unit is led by Steve Boren. Steve works with PIs to assess and develop plans to meet project needs (e.g., data security), and is responsible for the overall planning and day-to-day operation of the unit. He implements PRC policies and directives, develops plans for expansion and improvements to the unit, and manages staff workload. He served as co-coordinator for PAA computing services meetings from 2013-2016, and his expertise in network and data security made him key to establishing the Texas Federal Statistical Research Data Center (RDC) Branch at UT Austin. Steve manages two other CDS staff members, Mark Boze (Windows Systems and Network Administration) and Nicholas Metzler (Desktop Support).
