ICC Meeting:


The following are policies set in place within the ICC and are to be used as guidelines. They are not set in stone, but are understood to be the standards in place so that we have consistency and are organized.

  1. Computer Naming Scheme
    1. ICC agrees to the naming convention of "IF-OU-###". For example, "IF-AGR-6E7589".
  2. Local User Admin Rights
    1. Departmental approval.
    2. Local users should only be granted administrative rights on a computer if the situation dictates that rights are needed. These rights should be determined by the local IT or ITSA, if local IT is not available. For example, a lab machine that requires constant updates to unique software, etc etc. All responsibility for the local computer will be placed on the user requesting those rights and it should be known all responsibilities taken on, including virus, malware and ransomware possibilities and their consequences.
    3. Any department personnel requesting a local admin role will have to complete the following required courses. (See this link for more information in regards to Roles.)
      1. ISC898 UF Restricted Data Training
      2. PRV800 HIPAA & Privacy Gen. Awareness
      3. PRV802 FERPA Basics
      4. PRV804 Protecting Social Security Numbers
  3. Unit OU Admin Rights
    1. In addition to the Local User Admin Rights, if a person is being granted ADMN/ADML rights, the following courses also have to be completed.
      1. OIT200 myIT Tool – Incident & Request Management
      2. OIT100 ITSM Awareness
  4. Backups
    1. ITSA (Information Technology Server Administration) provides a network shared drive for each faculty/staff member with a GL (GatorLink) account. It is strongly encouraged that users store documents on their drive as opposed to storing it locally.
  5. Software Alternative
    1. Should mandated software not have the required features for the application it is being used for, altnerative software, vetted by ITSA, will be available for use.
