The Information Security Framework Project Team was recently recognized at the Information Security Executive® (ISE®) Award Program held in Dallas, Texas, on May 7. The team’s Information Security Framework Project was nominated as one of the best security projects of the year, pitting Ohio State up against companies like GE, Blue Cross Blue Shield and USAA.

Enterprise Security continues to make progress on the Framework Tools project, the ongoing initiative that provides Ohio State with the tools to organize, measure and manage information risk. The project continues the development and implementation of the overall Information Risk Management Program established in FY14.
To recap where we began, during November 2013, 159 university organizations completed the Information Risk Survey, which assessed 30 different information security related risk areas, an unparalleled accomplishment that provided a much-needed baseline.
Fast-forward to 2015 and support from university organizations has never been stronger. Through additional understanding from increased collaboration, the 159 university organizations have been streamlined into 113. All university organizations completed the second annual survey in October 2014 as well as their individual risk management strategies in December 2014. The overall risk scores improved by 10% over year one! As an added measure of success, the Information Risk Management Program achieved 100% participation within one year of its establishment!
It’s not surprising to see record usage of technology at Ohio State during the first week of autumn semester 2014, but that doesn’t make the numbers any less impressive! In a single day, OCIO recorded highs of 7.8 million authentications to "osuwireless" and "WiFi@OSU" along with 50,000 simultaneously connected devices to our university network with 91,000 unique device connections. Student’s increasing use of wireless-dependent devices drives this growth, and the Ohio State Mobile App is constantly upping its offerings to meet their needs.
OCIO’s Enterprise Applications team has been testing and perfecting their mobile version of SEIs, or Student Evaluations of Instruction. Beginning with the current summer term, all Ohio State students will be able to take these brief surveys through the OSU Mobile app on their smartphones and tablets.
Students, be sure to try out OSU Mobile when completing your SEIs!
Faculty, encourage your students to complete an SEI on a smartphone or tablet during the last day of class!
Several changes to the eLeave and eTimesheet system were finalized and released as of July 2014, one of which is the exciting addition of a new interactive eLeave calendar for supervisors.
When using eLeave, click the new Calendar link at the top of the page to open the leave calendar. All new, pending and approved leave requests for the employees who report to the supervisor will be displayed. Denied and deleted requests will not be displayed on the calendar.
We’re excited to have upgraded the university to the newest versions of the PeopleSoft Human Resources (HR) and Student Information System (SIS). These new versions of our HR, Payroll and Student applications are now being used across the enterprise by the Office of Human Resources (OHR), Payroll, Enrollment Services and The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, as well as many other colleges and departments.
