MINUTES - approval of 10/17 & 10/31 & 11/7 Minutes



During a recent IT Security meeting of UH Systems, Community Colleges and Manoa Unit personnel, a number of issues were discussed, among which were the:

1. Tremendous increase in Spam/Phishing mail which are being targeted specifically to users and the 3-fold increase (323) in the number of compromised UH accounts from last year‚s 112 and a 16-fold increase from the 2008 figure of 20 incidents
2. Initiative to strengthened UH passwords
3. Move of all faculty and staff to google mail (possible phishing attempts may increase)
4. Scanning of computers (not just servers) for sensitive personal information (social security #s, birth dates etc)

It is anticipated that all UH Staff will be required to move their email to Google by Spring (2012) and Faculty by Summer (2012). The time frames are tentative and may change. Another memo will be sent out as more details are known. Meanwhile, if you receive any messages about this from other sources and you are not sure that they are authentic, forward them on to us (see below).

  • Commitee Reports
