New websites focus on IT security and service

If your office phone isn't working, a campus website won't load or internet connectivity seems slow, a new website can shed some light on the problem ... if there is one.

The status page is one of two new sites and a fresh look for the information technology pages launched this month by IT:

  • The new system status webpage displays the current performance of IT services and networks, with a log of recent service interruptions and planned maintenance. Users can report issues or get help through the Solution Center.
  • IT's new security website provides a form to report suspected threats and security incidents. Alerts, support and resources -- such as email "phishing" scams or security tips -- also are available through the site.
