Cybersecurity: Ransomware
Tuesday, Nov. 2, 9 a.m.
Mike Jackson, Oklahoma State Cybersecurity Advisor, Department of Homeland Security

Ransomware in its most general form is a cybersecurity threat where a cybercriminal uses cryptographic function to lock out an organization from accessing their own data and holding this data access hostage for financial reward. The success of this threat concept is based on the value of the information to your organization within the data, and the resulting impact that would be suffered if the access to that information were not available to authorized users or exposed to unauthorized users. This workshop will focus on examples of how ransomware works, some basic prevention steps, and what you should do in the unfortunate event your organization becomes a victim of a ransomware attack.

The information provided highlights how threats of violence can be systematically investigated and how school and community attacks can be prevented when staff and community members understand threatening behavior, know how to identify signs of attack, and then move quickly to assess and de-escalate a situation.

Like all other institutions of higher education, UCO faced a wave of unknown challenges in early 2020 as the pandemic began to impact our daily operations. Working to keep our students and employees safe, UCO leaned on federal and state authorities for guidance but also reached out to other institutions in the region to identify best practices that would help us achieve our educational mission with as little disruption as possible, including expanded technology for course delivery and remote work; ensuring safe learning, working and living environments; PPE and contact tracing; procedures, policies, and communication; and many other facets of navigating the challenges that have been and still are part of our daily work. This presentation will provide an overview of what we have done well, and not so well, along with lessons we have learned and are still learning each day as the pandemic continues to impact our campus community.

When the Wind Comes Sweeping Down the Plain – Campus Weather Preparedness
Tuesday, Nov. 16, 1 p.m.
Dr. Kevin Kloesel, University Meteorologist, Department of Campus Safety, University of Oklahoma

Campuses are not just institutions of learning; they are also social gathering spaces for a range of activities. Students, staff, faculty and visitors are constantly outdoors and exposed to the elements while participating in hundreds of events, including athletic competitions, student-led events, fairs, camps, parades, donor functions and field research. Oklahoma is the climatological epicenter for hazardous weather such as tornadoes, hail, damaging wind gusts, intense heat and cold, and dangerous lightning. This workshop will provide resources needed to create all-weather hazard plans for campus activities ranging from small-donor functions to large athletic events, including current research in weather hazard occurrence, detection, situational awareness tools, and sheltering protocols. The webinar will also discuss the complications that COVID-19 continues to present to existing weather plans at institutions and include instructions on how to find and engage local meteorological professionals to assist with campus weather alerting needs.
