Details about this meeting:

I've deleted a lot of the old anchors that were in the minutes due to lack of updates. I suggest searching the ICC site for information that you may be looking for.

Patching updates... (previous discussion)


January's Microsoft patches are stil listed in the link. Current risk assessments can be found here.

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.



Videoconferencing and WAN discussion

Videoconferencing topics (previous discussion)

Skype Business for Mac has updates that should install using your Microsoft Autoupdater. (Last update was on 1/4/2019) SfB for both major OS's should automagically update.

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



Content Management System (CMS) (previous discussion)

Nothing new, no new updates from T4 on features actually working. (No, they still don't).

Updates as available.

Last month's IT@UF Meeting Notes

You can now view the notes from each meeting at this link.

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 will be meeting on Monday, October 15th. I will keep everyone posted on how the meeting goes, in regards to several policy recommendations dealing with the ICC.

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



We are currently working on a new ICC site and integration of Yammer. Stay Tuned! The new site is planning on using Microsoft Teams, pending the outcome of the software policy exception being brought forth to the ITPAC members.

Teams is now closer to fruition more than ever. We'll get an update in just a minute.

ICC Retreat

The official date has been set! May 21-22 (Tues-Wed) at the Straughn Center. We are currently working on the "breakaway" sessions, guests, etc. If you woud like to volunteer to be on the Retreat Committee, please email me.


IFAS IT Updates (previous discussion)

Joe would like to discuss the upcoming PHP upgrade.

PowerShell Learning Group is still going strong. If you would like to catch up on any of the classes that you've missed, please email Andrew Carey
