DNS enables everything else on the Internet — both good and bad. By watching what bad guys do with their DNS configurations and offering them differentiated (that is to say, poor) service, defenders can re-level the playing field in our favor. In this keynote address, Internet pioneer and CEO of Farsight Security, Inc., Dr. Paul Vixie, CEO of Farsight Security, will explain how the bad guys are exploiting DNS to commit fraud and other cybercrime and specific techniques you can use i.e. DNSSEC, TSIG, RRL and RPZ to defend your organization.

As part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month in October, Duke staff, faculty and students can take a quiz to test their phishing detection skills. All Duke users who take the quiz will be entered into a drawing to win an AppleWatch. In addition, any Duke users who report a phishing email toin October will be entered into a separate drawing to receive a special gold challenge coin recognizing them as a Duke information security ambassador.
Throughout October, Duke’s IT Security Office will share tips and resources to help staff, faculty and students protect their digital security. In addition, Duke IT staff will present two Learn IT @ Lunch sessions and will be available at various on-campus events giving away webcam covers and other freebies.

The goal of this session is to help you better understand best practices for projects that collect, store, and/or analyze data considered “sensitive.” We will discuss: common data types and sources; how Duke’s Institutional Review Board (IRB), Office of Research Support (ORS), and the Information Technology Security Office (ITSO) expect data to be protected throughout a project’s lifecycle; resources available for sensitive data storage and analysis; and how best to utilize those resources.
A variety of box lunches and drinks will be provided. If you have special dietary restrictions, email firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 1.

Students will be required to use Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on some services beginning April 17.
For students, MFA will be required to access DukeHub, Box, Sakai, and Outlook Web Access (OWA) to Office 365. They are already required to use it for Duke@Work, the Virtual Private Network (VPN), Virtual Computing Manager (VCM), and Teer Lab machines.
For faculty/staff, we will be adding MFA in front of OWA/Office 365 and Time and Attendance, when accessing these sites from off-campus (similar to what we did with Box). Time and Attendance is picking up the requirement due to it being “behind” the same authentication infrastructure as O365 (Microsoft ADFS).
