Summer 2013 Issue

A Message from the CTO:

IT continues to work hard to maintain a seamless infrastructure for all of Troy's needs. We hope you enjoy reading the IT Update.

The 2013 IT Summit approaches. Last year, hundreds of employees participated in the training event. This year, we have expanded the scope of the IT Summit to include training on a wide-variety of topics. Please visit the IT Summit training website at http://itsummit.troy.edu. Extensive, hands-on training from subject matter experts will highlight this year's event. Key activities at this year's summit include an opportunity to interact with the new Recruiter management platform, participate in the mandatory end-user security training and witness the debut of many new solutions that have been designed to increase end-user productivity. Watch your email for updates to the event, August 28 - August 30.

All employees with access to privileged systems will have to participate in annual security training in order to maintain access to the resources. The training will be exhibited at the IT Summit, then online. Increasing security awareness among Troy's user community is a fundamental component in Troy's information assurance efforts - an aware user is the best resource for combating the scores of opportunities that exist for nefarious digital activities.

Implementation of the Recruiter CRM began several months ago. The tool will provide a consolidated electronic services portfolio for managing the prospective student stream. A robust group of Troy staff are working quickly to deploy the tool.

As always, efforts to improve the web presences are underway. Some of the new enhancements are visible through the use of high-level aggregation sites. As an example, http://trojan.troy.edu is a collection point for the myriad of resources available to Troy's internal audiences. A new site, http://hermes.troy.edu, offers a quick and intuitive review of all of the major electronic communication systems offered by Troy University. Under development are new search tools, enhanced mobile presence and new prospective student recruiting site.

A new military and veterans support site debuted today: http://www.troy.edu/military/. Please take an opportunity to visit these sites and offer suggestions or comments.

New technologies emerge constantly; contact IT if you need assistance in reviewing devices and/or software before purchasing.

Further development to the customer resource management solution has been exceptionally productive in the past few months. Review the update and contact IT if your support group has interest in participating in the solution.

The redesign of the ITAPS (Information Technology Accountability and Planning System) debuted in Winter 2012. Please visit the site, http://itaps.troy.edu, to follow large IT projects.

In surveys and at the IT Summit forum, IT discussed the need for additional bandwidth. IT has developed a new solution for bandwidth management, we are in the final stages of increasing the services. In the Fall 2013 Welcome Back notice, additional information will be provided.

As always, continue to practice safe computing habits: do not share login credentials or personal data via email, do not leave applications running on an unattended PC.

This month's issue of SANS Ouch! Newsletter is especially interesting for those who seek guidance on the security issues associated with mini URL's and QR codes.

 

Thanks.

W. Greg Price
