Beginning today, Oct. 18, all U of I Zoom users will need to login using SSO to access Zoom accounts. Login to Zoom and select “sign in.” This will direct you to your Zoom account using your regular U of I credentials which includes authentication through Duo.
 

Beware of Phish

Phishing emails remain a popular attack method. The ability to spot a phish helps prevent hackers from stealing your credentials, infecting your devices with malware or tricking you into taking other actions. As part of ongoing training efforts, ITS sends out fake phishing messages that look and function like real ones to an anonymous random sample of U of I employees every month so you can practice spotting and reporting these scams. If you become a victim during these exercises, take some time to complete the training or review resources to increase your knowledge. This is an opportunity for you to #BeCyberSmart. We want you to be excellent at detecting phish.

Employee Announcements

Banner Web Time Entry

As announced in the Friday, Oct. 1 Daily Register, the VandalWeb timesheet was upgraded to the Banner 9 Employee Dashboard. However, the upgrade is creating unforeseen technical issues for some employee devices. While these technical issues are being addressed, the previous Banner 8 version of Web Time Entry has been enabled in conjunction with the new Banner 9 version on VandalWeb. Employees will be able to use the version that works best on their devices. The Banner 8 version will be phased out when the technical issues are resolved.
 

Hazardous Driving Ahead

Some weather forecasts are already hinting at snow. Winter driving calls for special skills and a bit of preparation. Keep your vehicle in good condition and stocked with a winter emergency kit. Use smooth, gentle pressure on the accelerator and brake pedals and allow extra time to get to your destination. If something happens and you are stranded or stuck, stay with your vehicle. Most importantly, check the road and weather reports before your trip. Find more safety tips.
