Data Privacy Month Is Almost Here

January 28, Data Privacy Day, kicks off a month of awareness about data privacy.  This is an annual effort to improve awareness of and best practices for protecting your privacy and keeping your data safe.  Click here to review one of last year’s webinars titled “Data Privacy Month: Are You Smarter Than Your Phone?”

WCTS Represented at SIGUCCS 2013

Cate Lyon, Robert Fricke and student help desk manager Jake Gavin presented “Facebook: How We Lost Control and Found Empowerment” at SIGUCCS 2013 in Chicago, Ill.  This presentation highlighted what we did to resolve the desire to engage our student staff to a greater degree within our department and our desire to make the WCTS Facebook presence more timely and relevant. The session was well attended and started many different conversations regarding the rather unorthodox path we chose in achieving our goal to expand communication with Whitman students through social media as well as the pitfalls we discovered along the way.  image

Superman’s Got Your Back!

This is Superman.  He is from the Whitman College bookstore.  Superman can save YOU from human mistakes such as spilling coffee on your laptop. Because this Superman is special-he’s a removable USB drive.  WCTS highly recommends investing in a backup solution, whether it be an online file backup service such as SpiderOak or Carbonite, an external hard drive that performs automatic backups, saving your files to a network drive, or even a simple solution such as Superman.        ..
