One IT colleagues,
UC Berkeley teamed up with Google to launch a building density dashboard that assists space planners with developing and monitoring space usage during the pandemic. Prior to the dashboard, the task of tracking density and space usage was done manually.
On Thursday, April 15 at 11 a.m. we hosted a town hall for the campus community on how to protect yourself against identity theft. This was in response to the recent cyberattack impacting the University of California and hundreds of other organizations.

One IT colleagues,
Spring is here! And with it comes another opportunity to perfect your game face and join us for some fun.
To our campus community:
The UC Berkeley Information Security Office, in coordination with the UC Office of the President (UCOP), is responding to a security incident involving UC employee information.
Beginning Monday, March 29, many UC Berkeley email accounts started receiving messages stating that their personal data had been stolen and would be released. We learned from our colleagues that similar messages were being received in email accounts for multiple campuses throughout the UC system.
Do I Actually “Do” Anything?
A few months ago my daughter was working on a school assignment involving career exploration, and as part of her research she asked me, “Mom, what do you do at work?”
Feeling very important I answered, “I’m a Chief Information Security Officer, so I’m responsible for protecting all the computers on the UC Berkeley network from hackers.”
To our campus community,
We are pleased to announce that we have contracted with LastPass to offer all faculty, staff, and students access to a FREE LastPass Premium account. Sign up for LastPass during the month of March and you will automatically be entered to win one of 10 Amazon Gift Cards.
Remote work over the past year has highlighted the value of the biannual summits as a means to virtually connect as a community. We’re spending more time online than ever before, making cybersecurity all the more important, and UC’s cybersecurity professionals are key to helping UC adapt to this new and changing environment. Through the summit, we learn more from each other.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, the UC Women in Technology Committee presents a visual timeline of UC women working in IT who have contributed to helping the university address the pandemic. They may work in education technology, IT security, enterprise software development, health IT, and many other fields.
We are happy to announce we recently completed a project to add Call Protect to your AT&T campus cellular line at no additional charge. Call Protect is a feature that helps reduce the number of spam and robocalls you receive on your cell phone. This feature is only available for faculty and staff cellular lines supported by IST Telecom.
The UC Berkeley Mobile app has been updated to make it easier to comply with campus requirements with fewer prompts to sign in. Log into the app to complete the Daily Symptom Screener, show your badge, and to access the eTang Portal.

In April 2020, the Berkeley Information Security Office (ISO) sent a proposed new Roles and Responsibilities Policy for comment. This Policy consolidates information security-related roles and responsibilities from UC Berkeley and UC’s systemwide Electronic Information Security Policy, IS-3. It applies to all individuals who use or access UC Berkeley institutional information or IT resources.
To faculty and staff,
We are delighted to announce Avaya Workplace, a VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) solution that complements your current campus landlines (digital PBX) at no additional cost. As we continue to do much of our work remotely, we hope this new service provides a simplified option for your communication needs. This service allows you to use your computer or smartphone to make or take calls from your campus phone number - anywhere in the world!
