B103 - Security: Not Just IT!

1:30 p.m. - 2:30 p.m.
Dr. Frank Cervone, Executive Director of Information Technology & College Information Security Officer, School of Public Health, University of Illinois at Chicago & Lecturer, San Jose State University iSchool
Jim Peterson, IT Manager, Goodnight Memorial Library

As trusted information resources, libraries have an obligation to provide a safe and secure computing environment for their community. This, however, isn’t just the responsibility of the IT department; it is a shared responsibility across all staff. Cervone provides an overview of the critical issues in security, an outline of what training is required, and what resources are available free from which a library can develop a security training program. Peterson doesn’t think any library is too small for bad guys to worry about, even those using WordPress. He demonstrates the Wordfence security plug-in on his own library’s website—live! He shows how this one plug-in blocks malicious attackers’ attempts to log in to the library’s website via common logins, as well as various other tools and reports this plug-in provides.
