IT Rights Orientation, 2017

Written by Rene Estremera. Posted in News

An Information Technology Rights and Responsibilities Orientation was held on 9 March 2017 in Lorenzo Hall.  Major university offices such as the Office of the Chancellor, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Administration, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, Office of Research, and the Cash Office, plus the University Student Council and the CHSS Student Council were represented.  The speakers were Asst. Prof. Miguel Guillermo and Lecturer Kim Gargar from the Dept. of Math., Physics, and Computer Science, and Krishna Balaga from the Information Technology Office. The salient points of the talk were:

1) It is recommended that constituents do not install pirated software, as they may damage computers and make these vulnerable to attacks.
2) Using free and open-source software will not only avoid possible legal issues, but will reduce overall dependency on large software companies.
3) With regard to the letter of Adobe Corp. to scan University computers, Adobe, being a private entity, cannot compel other private individuals or institutions to give them information or allow them access to networks and private users.  As of the moment, the IT Office will not allow a "sniffing tool" to be deployed over the University network to gain access to users of the network.
4) The IT Office is open to any inquiries regarding this, or other IT matters.

The All UP Academic Employees Union president, Asst. Prof. Andrea Malaya Ragragio, expressed thanks to the speakers and participants who attended.
