Security Improvement Planning Underway

by Dave Smallen

Last fall Hamilton, along with other NY 6 Colleges (Colgate, Union, Skidmore, Hobart and William Smith and St. Lawrence) hired a team of security consultants to assess our network security environments. We are in the process of collectively developing a plan to implement the recommendations from the consultant's report.

Whether email phishing schemes mentioned in the previous article or Internet service disruptions as a result of a denial of service attack (DOS) like that experienced on April 13, we are continually reminded that everyone can play a role in improving the security of our network environment at Hamilton. In the coming months, ITS will be in touch with the campus community on ways they can assist in this very important effort.
