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 hawaii.edu 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)
MOVE TO GOOGLE MAIL
It is anticipated that all UH Staff will be required to move their @hawaii.edu 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).
- WASC Resource Fair
The WASC Commission has approved the first stage of the accreditation redesign process <http://www.wascsenior.org/redesign/novemberpressrelease> . A major component of the redesign is that institutions will be expected to demonstrate that their graduates have achieved the institution’s stated level of proficiency at least in the following five areas stated in CFR 2.2a: written communication, oral communication, quantitative skills, critical thinking and information literacy.
Please join us to explore promising practices by institutions in evaluating these graduation proficiencies and resources available through assessment tool providers. This one-day event will be a great opportunity to network with peers in the region and to inform elements of the WASC redesign as we gather feedback on appropriate frameworks around measuring graduation proficiencies.
Who should join: Anyone from your institution involved in or interested in assessment, especially ALOs, CAOs and faculty
