The NAU IS Team is responsible for compliance, incident response, preventative measures, and information outreach to campus. They are also responsible for consulting and advocacy on things such as database and network security. NAU was victim to a direct deposit arrack this past year that was resolved expeditiously. Unfortunately the Maricopa Community Colleges were not so lucky and are currently resolving a security breach that has cost the system 20 million dollars to date. Direct student related security issues include things like bullying, plagiarism and other forms of academic dishonesty.

ROA automation has been a great success since the go-live. 9:20 – 9:30am Survey results Discussion Trevor presented the results and there was not a tell tale item that pointed towards the council making any sweeping changes. Regularly popular presentation topics were reiterated and the most voted on item by Service Professionals was perhaps the addition of a key note speaker at the SPAC Annual Meeting.
