Save the date for the ninth biannual UC Cyber Security Summit, which will be held at UC Berkeley on April 15, 2020.

The summit is UC’s semiannual meeting that brings together people from across the university to discuss and learn about cybersecurity and cyber-risk management.  Now is a good time to save the date and obtain your travel approvals.

What did they want? As process improvement people, they wanted tools. Specifically, a tool that slashes the time spent mapping processes.

Their collaboration began casually over lunch in fall 2019. Sri Ramya Bachu Venkata, a project manager at UC Berkeley, was enthusiastically telling Halina Wojnicz, IT PMO director at UC Office of the President, about a new tool she was testing called Promapp.

Venkata said with Promapp she could map a business process in two hours instead of eight. “I haven’t seen a simpler way to visualize and articulate complicated processes,” she said.

24 Accessibility

One of the biggest barriers to accessibility is awareness. We often hear how diversifying our workforce is good for business. I would like to examine why disabilities should be a part of that formula. When developers are tasked with making something accessible, chances are none of them has ever encountered someone with a disability, so they don’t even know where to begin. By having a diverse workforce that includes people with disabilities, you improve the quality of the product and get accessibility into the product life cycle much sooner.
