Two-Factor Authentication

Two-Factor was expected to have all current and new staff enrolled by July 1st. I haven't seen any updates on the stats.

It does seem that Cisco bought the Duo Security, so time will tell how much changes over the next 6 months to a year.

Skype Business for Mac has updates that should install using your Microsoft Autoupdater. (Last update was on 11/6/2019) SfB for both major OS's should automagically update.

Zoom updates are available, either through Software Center or through Zoom directly.

You can now view the notes from each meeting at this link.The next meeting will be held on Thursday, December 19th at 9am.

ITSA Policy and UF IT Policy

I've found it difficult to find the ITSA Computing Policy and the UF IT Policies, so I will provide the links here and keep them here.

ITSA - http://imm.ifas.ufl.edu

UF IT - http://www.it.ufl.edu/policies/

There will now be an ICC Policy Page that will keep track of policy and guidelines. These are not strict rules meant to dictate what must be done, but instead, a page of policies that are meant to help keep things running smoothly for each department and ITSA. You can find it here.

ITPAC met on Monday, October 15th. The group agreed with recommended policies and will present them to Dr.Payne for final approval.

Andrew Carey provided a link to fixing incorrectly named devices. You can find it here.



Please keep in mind that if you would like a TEAMs demostration, Joe and DeWayne are available to do so. Email either of them for more information.
