Cyber Security and Sparta Awards!

IT Colleagues,

I just wanted to take a few moments of your time to share a couple of things with you, starting with our awesome new shirts. I hope you will all wear these on Thursday, Oct. 27th.

Homecoming and NCSAM

October is an exciting month on campus! Not only is it National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), but it’s also Homecoming. To reinforce a campus culture of cyber security awareness, we’ve ordered t-shirts for everyone in the division. I’d like to encourage everyone to wear their SJSU IT Cyber Security shirts on Thursday, October 27. If you haven’t gotten yours yet, reach out to Willie and she’ll hook you up with one. If you can make it, there will be a quick meetup at the SJSU IT Service Desk at 11:30 am that day for a division photo. I hope to see you there.

I want to thank the Information Security team for their work coordinating with the campus and the CSU on NCSAM events and campaigns, such as the FBI Financial and Cyber Crime Webinar and the Cybersecurity Games: Cole Gunter, Janice Lew, Noel McCormick, and Marco Scardina. I also want to thank Willie Simon and the Service Desk team (Alfred Eclipse, John Hanley, Celine Mingfield, Eric Pan, Sharon Watkins, and Trevor Wylie) for getting these shirts into everyone’s hands.

Sparta Awards Reminder

A few weeks ago, we opened up nominations for this year’s individual and team Sparta Awards. The deadline is coming fast: October 31st! There’s still time to get your submission in and let everyone know about the amazing things your co-workers have done.

Fill out this Google Form with a brief description of your colleague’s work and how they meet the selection criteria to enter them for the award. As always, you can read about past winners and reference selection criteria on our website. I look forward to reading all about your colleagues’ success.

As always, if you ever want to connect, you can drop by my open office hours from 2 pm to 4 pm every Thursday. That’s time I set aside to be available for anyone and everyone in the division. And thank you again for all you do.
