Do you know what to do during an earthquake? Drop to the floor and take cover by getting under a sturdy table or piece of furniture, or crouch in an inside corner of the building and cover your face and head with your arms.

At it’s very simplest, OneDrive is our new, secure, and universally accessible storage location for all your work files.
However, OneDrive offers a lot more than just file storage! It’s an integral part of Office 365 and by using OneDrive, it also allows for:
Once your files are in the OneDrive, you can access them from any computer or mobile device that has internet access. If you’re at a meeting across campus, at home, traveling for work – whatever the scenario – if you need to access your files, you can use either the Office 365 portal or the mobile app.
If you need a colleague to review a file, by using the “Share” feature, they can view and update the file in your OneDrive – their changes will automatically appear in the file. No need to email a file back and forth!
You also can be in the same file as your colleague and both make real time updates.
By using OneDrive to store your files, you gain so much flexibility and accessibility. To help you, the Enterprise Training Group provides both training opportunities and resources. Please visit the Office 365 website for information.Sarah Steinberg Bulletin Board, Collaboration, Education, People, Technology, University AdministrationJune 28, 20170 comments

UMB’s computing environment requires a high level of security to ensure the privacy, integrity, and confidentiality of the data that reside in its systems.
During the last 10 years, the UMID and password have developed and served as a common credential to gain access to systems and services at the University. This authentication strategy has greatly improved the computing services user experience. However, with the growth of cyber threats and attacks, and the attempts to convince individuals to reveal their credential, known as phishing, the computing industry recognized the need to develop a technology to address this problem.
An approach was devised to leverage multiple verification methods and to no longer rely only on a single credential. The combined strength of these multiple factors of authentication create a confidence or level of assurance that the person accessing the system is the appropriate individual.
At UMB, we will be transitioning to a MFA approach that allows users to use a mobile device in addition to their UMID and password to achieve a significantly higher level of security and almost entirely negate the risk associated with phishing and similar attacks.
The Center for Information Technology Services (CITS) has been preparing the computing environment for the implementation of this new technology since last year. CITS also has been coordinating with each school and department to plan the implementation of MFA across the campus.
The first phase of this roll-out will cover the systems that contain the University’s most sensitive data and the users that can access those data. As each of these systems are integrated with MFA, the impacted users will be contacted individually with relevant timelines and instructions for how to set up and use MFA in their daily computing operations.
For more information on this project, check out the CITS site.Joe Dincau Collaboration, Education, People, Technology, UMB News, University AdministrationJune 21, 20170 comments

The National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NNLM) is excited to announce a new web resource, NNLM RD3: Resources for Data-Driven Discovery.
NNLM RD3 is a place for librarians, information professionals, library and information science students, and interested individuals to learn about and discuss research data management throughout the data lifecycle for biomedical and scientific research.
NNLM RD3 contains subject primers, professional development events, and information on the major components of research data management: data management, storage, and sharing. The subject primers provide introductory overviews on topic areas within data literacy, physical sciences, life sciences, and engineering.
Professional development opportunities will be continuously updated. The resources compiled on the site will help you learn the basics of data management and the ins and outs of data visualization, as well serve as a guide to regional and national level activities.Ryan Harris Bulletin Board, Collaboration, Education, People, Research, University Administration, USGAJune 20, 20170 comments
