ADMINISTRATIVE ANNOUNCEMENTS

1.  IT ANNOUNCEMENT: C-SAFE Recorded Archive Available:

On March, 1 the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and 
SecureFlorida.org brought a free, one-day seminar on safe computing 
practices to the University of Florida Reitz Union Auditorium in 
Gainesville.  C- SAFE, Cyber-Security Awareness for Everyone, was hosted 
by the UF IT Security Team as part of their goal to raise security 
awareness at UF and in the Gainesville community.  For those who were 
unable to attend, the recorded archive can be found at: 
http://infosec.ufl.edu/events/csafe/.

This awarding-winning seminar is geared toward educating the every-day 
computer user on Internet security and to teach ways for users to protect 
their identity, finances and other sensitive data.  Topics include basic 
cyber risks such as viruses, worms and spyware; how to handle e-mail 
safely such as spam, fraud and hoaxes; important online personal security 
such as identity theft, cyber-stalking, chatting, and passwords; and 
additional security about networks and firewalls.
