Are there any UC events or new sources that you suggest we share?
Yes, please share the following:
Cybersecurity is not a one person or one office job, cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility. UC information security professionals face unprecedented challenges, and we need your help. The former UC President, Janet Napolitano, while serving as the Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, made famous the familiar phrase, “If You See Something, Say Something” and this phrase is applicable to everything cyber-related. Please report cybersecurity related incidents to your Location information security office. Outside of reporting suspicious cyber-related activity, get to know your Location information security staff and seek their input on IT matters. We would love to get to know you more. With shared awareness, trust, and mutual respect, we as a unified UC can overcome cybersecurity challenges. Thank you for your continued vigilance.
