OIT, in collaboration with the IT Leaders of our schools and colleges, will be simulating a data center outage to test, verify and remediate our planned failover capabilities. Planned failover testing of the North Classroom Data Center is on Sunday, July 30th. This is an estimated 8-hour testing window from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm to evaluate system backup processes and remediate any issues that present. To test these processes, we will be simulating a network outage, but no power or devices will actually be turned off.
Primary security concerns with AI at the university include attackers deliberately injecting false information to compromise the integrity of data in machine learning mode and uploading data into AI where is may remain permanently without appropriate university approved protections and security controls.
The Wi-Fi upgrades taking place on the CU Anschutz and CU Denver campuses will prepare the university for future growth in technology. You’ll see our work in progress street signs in front of buildings where work is occurring!
October was Cybersecurity Awareness Month and the Office of Information Technology (OIT) and the Office of Security and Compliance (OSC) partnered with security and compliance departments across the university to deliver a month of cybersecurity content. This included webinars, news articles, and sharing best practices information. Each week during the month of October featured a cybersecurity threat prevention tool and explained why they are helpful. While Cybersecurity Awareness Month is over, cybersecurity is a conversation and practice that is relevant every day. Visit the OIT website for more information, FAQs, and resources so that you can take measures to keep your information safe.
