UW campus vulnerability scan coming soon

Beginning on July 5, participating UW-Madison campus units will undergo an external cybersecurity risk assessment. This vulnerability scan, through Cylance, Inc., is intended to identify signs of malicious activity for the purpose of diagnosing possible compromise and risks to participating units. If compromised machines are discovered during the analysis, Cylance will contact the Office of Cybersecurity for follow up and remediation with system owners. Please refer to the Office of Cybersecurity web page for more details as to how this will be administered, when, and how this might affect each department. Refer to the “Frequently Asked Questions” (FAQs) that have been prepared to address a number of initial questions.

New food shed offers free vegetables, produce

The new UW Campus Food Shed offers students and faculty access to free vegetables and produce, stocked by UW agriculture researchers and local farms with excess crops. Many of this excess produce would otherwise be composted or thrown out. The food shed refrigerator is on  the third floor of the Student Activities Center, with other locations in Science Hall, the Allen Centennial Garden and the Horticulture Building. It is open Monday through Friday. The refrigerator will be stocked when researchers and students have produce available, most consistently on Fridays.

UW-Madison adopts drone use policy

A new UW–Madison policy will help researchers and instructors on campus meet the Federal Aviation Administration rules for flying unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) — better known as aerial drones — while also helping to protect privacy. The policy, “University of Wisconsin–Madison Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Policy,” encourages safe and lawful use of drones for research and instruction. The policy provides a drone use approval process and replaces a previous campus policy that prohibited students, staff or outside entities from operating unmanned aircraft/drones on the UW–Madison campus, interiors or exteriors. The new policy allows for some drone use for research and teaching.
