Area 51 notes, Feb. 10, 2011

Present: Mike, Mike, Danna, Chris, Carol, Mary, Doreen (notes).  Guest: Ian Burke

Ian joined us and shared his thoughts on how security initiatives are being managed at Middlebury. He included a list of tasks and timelines (see below), some of which are already being worked on by Chris Norris and the security team.  We need to strengthen our infrastructure’s security and develop procedures and policies.  The change management policy is most important.

• Security Infrastructure / Now
