Enhanced Cybersecurity Campaign

Through winter and spring 2018, the security team is rolling out a comprehensive set of initiatives that will significantly improve the cybersecurity of UCSF’s data, networks, and computer systems. These actions are in direct response to increasing global threats to UCSF systems, including a dramatic rise in phishing attacks. We are taking these steps to protect our data and IT systems and to protect you from the negative consequences of being part of a data breach. Our dedicated network, identity management, and security teams will be implementing these important changes, many of which will be transparent to our UCSF community. Please continue to check this page for updates.
