CDL Security guidelines adopted and posted
By John Ober, Manager, Infrastructure and Applications Support
The CDL has adopted and published a set of Information Technology Key Security Guidelines & Baseline Supporting Practices, along with a companion System Access and Account Management Policy. The guidelines are available at http://www.cdlib.org/about/policies.html. Thanks are due to the CDL Tech Council and Director’s Cabinet, and the html markup of Eric Satzman’s web production group (notably Craig Thompson).
Continuing the trend, CDL Executive Director Laine Farley has charged a small group – John Ober, Lisa Schiff, Joan Starr, and Lena Zentall – to develop a departmental Business/Service Continuity and Disaster Recovery framework and implementation plan whose initial results should be available in February, 2012. As with the others, that effort will interpret and extend existing UC and UCOP policies and procedures (see http://www.ucop.edu/riskmgt/emergprep/).
