Whether you’re worried about email scams, trying to choose a good password, or deciding if an internet service will keep your data safe, OIT’s new Security web site has advice and answers.

Newly organized around communities with various needs, you can find information collected for your University role (faculty), the information you work with (student records), a question you have (encryption), or services you need (security certificates), you can now find help quickly and easily.

OIT’s IT Security team watches for the latest threats and solutions, follows changes in law and policy, and is ready to advise UCI affiliates in balancing business efficiency, risk mitigation, and privacy protection.  And if you need help you can’t find on the web site, feel free to email security@uci.edu

OIT Does That?

OIT is a diverse organization, responsible for many campus services.  This is the first in a series of articles highlighting OIT activities you may not be aware of.

OIT Operators

Campus Operator

When anyone “calls UCI,” they reach the campus operator, who cheerfully answers questions, gives directions, or figures out the person or department the caller needs.

Led by Gayle Bonham, the operator staff includes a group of bright and friendly students ensuring callers to UCI have a good impression of the campus.

Gayle has worked for UCI for 25 years, starting as a temp, then working for the Medical Center before coming to OIT.  Her favorite part of the job is getting to know people all around the campus.  She says, “I enjoy helping people and putting a smile on their face.”

If you need help reaching someone at UCI by phone, call 824-5011, and Gayle or her “angels” will direct you to the right place.
