Tell Me Game

Teams are more effective and engaged when there is trust between members. Authentic conversation can build trust. Tell Me...is a card game designed to invite authentic conversation by facilitating: connection with each other by attentatively listening to group members talk about meaningful or light topics; connection with yourself by mindfully sensing your body, senses, and breath as you listen and speak. Created by one of our own Cal Bears, Kelly Werner, a clinical psychologist who received her Bachelor's, Master's, and PhD degrees here at UC Berkeley. For more information visit: Tell Me...

Get Ready to Be Secure!

Get Ready to bSecure! "The bSecure project is a joint initiative from the Network Operations & Services (NOS) and Information Security & Policy (ISP) teams. The mission of the bSecure project is to replace aging Campus firewall and VPN technologies, and offer additional threat prevention and enhanced security services on Campus networks. Data Center migration to the new Palo Alto Networks firewall service is well underway, with campus firewalls and VPN services to follow this summer and fall.

In this session, we’ll offer a live tour of the bSecure firewall management interface (“Panorama”) and demonstrate the “next generation” features that will protect your systems from today’s advanced security threats. We’ll cover the many benefits of bSecure, including:

  • Better security and simplified management with application and user based policies.
  • Secure VPN services including integration with CalNet 2-Step.
  • Firewall protection for departments of all sizes through the Shared Firewall Service.
  • Visibility into threats to your systems with detailed logging and reporting.

Come with your questions, and get ready to bSecure!
