The Web Development Lab has been improving the day-to-day lives of University educators and administrators for over 10 years through the development of custom web applications. We will briefly demonstrate a few recent projects to showcase the variety and complexity of services offered by the Web Lab.
If you are interested in utilizing web technology to improve your work processes, be it through online forms, research databases, or something truly unique, this will be a valuable session to you.
The University of Connecticut participated with other State agencies and Universities to create a new set of retention requirements surrounding Information Systems Records. The current set of retention requirements are completely new and should be much easier to implement and follow.
This discussion will focus on the following items:
1. S6 Retention Schedule – A brief overview and an opportunity to ask questions
2. Information Security Office recommendations for data retention in compliance with schedule 6
3. Associated documentation and forms to assist with data classification
4. Technical solutions provided by Information Security to assist in data retention
This talk should be helpful for anyone that has access to business systems data.

This session will offer an overview of the hardware and software of HuskyCT, the Learning Management System at UConn. The application, Blackboard Vista (formerly called WebCT), offers powerful tools for organizing and presenting course material and can also be used for communication and collaboration among any group of university users. We will talk about the present system and future upgrade.
Learn about FAMIS (Facilities Administration Management Information System)
Know the definition of space… When we step on any campus, we enter a space (building, structure, subterranean, upper levels, outside grounds, parking lots, antennas, and more), and that space is managed and served with the use of FAMIS. Wonder about the building constructed outside the Union Street Market? The construction is managed in FAMIS. Help, it’s too cold in my work area; the facilities repair is served via FAMIS. Grant projects moved around in some of the buildings -academic use of space is tracked in FAMIS.
What is FAMIS and what solution is offered to the University Community? Who are the users? What are we using now and what is coming? What is the technology? Solution demos….Join us and find out!
The Information Security Office will present the initial draft of the Information Security Master Plan and associated Risk Matrix. This will be an opportunity to see where the security office sees the most significant threats and outline the current proposed approaches for addressing these threats. I will keep the presentation to 30 minutes so that there will be ample time for discussion, questions and feedback. This will also be an opportunity to offer input into the current strategies and overall plan.
