News & Announcements
As many of you know, the university now uses McAfee ePO for enterprise management of anti-virus and full-disk encryption needs. Effective December 31st, 2014, the university will end support of Symantec PGP full-disk encryption. Machines not decrypted by this deadline may not be able to obtain recovery keys from the server causing the potential for data loss. It is strongly recommended that all PGP encrypted devices be decrypted within this time frame and that data be backed up prior to the decryption process. The Office of Information Security (OIS) will communicate directly with unit level IT staff in the following days to assist with identification of potential PGP users and systems. Full-disk encryption via McAfee ePO can be implemented by authorized unit level IT staff. Please contact OIS via email@example.com or 513-558-ISEC (4732) with any questions or concerns.
UCIT Office of Information Security (UCIT OIS) is pleased to announce the results from the campus Shred Event on Thursday, September 25, in Lot 13 outside of the Kettering Lab Complex on West campus. Courtesy of sponsorship from Document Destruction, UCIT OIS collected, securely shredded and recycled nearly 6,100 pounds (3.05 tons!) of documents received from 20 departments/colleges in only 4 hours at zero cost to the university. If you and/or your department or college were unable to participate in this first shred event, don’t worry. UCIT OIS will be hosting another one in the near future, so be looking out for a date! All personal and professional documents are accepted, but paper clips, hanging file folders and other metal/plastic must be removed from the documents in advance. (Staples are okay.) For additional information please visit the UCIT OIS website at http://www.uc.edu/infosec/services/shredding.html
