Celeste introduced Rick Moroz from Alumni Affairs and Development. He will be replacing Rob Waterman at ISC.
1. The agenda was approved. The minutes of Oct. 2/08 meeting are on the website.
2. IT Decision Framework Updates
a) Encryption – Doug Badger
The pilot project is moving ahead. The first two machines have been encrypted in partnership with WINMAGIC. The target is sensitive data on portable devices. The initial scope is limited to legislative compliance using the Secretariat’s Privacy “databank”. Doug explained that they will be searching out areas to involve in the pilot. If anyone is interested they are asked to contact Doug Badger or Doug Blain.
3. CCS Project Management Framework – Kent Hoeg
Mike told ISC members that Price Waterhouse (PWC), the external auditors, strongly recommended that we have a project management framework.
Kent gave an overview of Project Management Framework within CCS. He explained that he is willing to share this framework with other departments on campus sometime in the new year.
4. Impact of University Early Retirement and Resignation – Mike Ridley
Mike explained that as a result of the Voluntary Early Retirement (VER) there will be an impact on IT Services. The four year budget target was $850,000 in CCS. In CCS and the Office of the CIO, 11 staff members were approved for the VER. Some of these staff members have been on campus for 35 years and some of these positions we cannot do without. Of concern are four members in University Systems supporting enterprise systems. CCS will explore other ways to deliver these services – using resources better and doing things differently.
NOTE: This will be an active item on the agenda.
5. Network Access – Security Policies - Bo Wandschneider
PWC also recommended that there be an over arching security framework put in place. The PMO’s office is currently developing this. Bo reviewed security policies that CCS’ networking group is working on. This involes the network infrastructure, messaging infrastructure, network connections and the network access controls.
6. Infrastructure Sub-committee’s Survey on UofG Information Technology Planning and Priority Setting – Bo Wandschneider
Bo gave a brief overview of the survey, the response, the results and next steps. The priorities will be brought back to ISC.
7. Future Agenda Items
Mike asked members if they had any items for the agenda to let him know.
The next meeting is Dec. 9/08.
