UVA IT Academy
ITS leadership is committed to well-rounded technical training & professional development of our staff and we know that employees value and appreciate our investment in their learning and development. After a period of offering quarterly skills classes to our ITS workforce, we are now launching a more formalized and comprehensive IT Academy.
Simplify Your Online Life with LastPass
UVA faculty, staff, and students are encouraged to create LastPass premium accounts (at no cost). LastPass is a password management tool that stores both personal and UVA passwords in one central, secure place; syncs across devices and browsers; makes logging in to frequently visited websites faster; and generates strong passwords for new accounts.
IT leadership with the support of the Board of Visitors has completed a security enhancement program aimed at fortifying the security of data and information stored on University resources and aiding in the prevention of future cyber attacks.
Enhancing UVA Research Capabilities
UVA ITS partnered with the Data Science Institute and the UVA School of Medicine to provide faculty with a new Protected Data Analytics Cluster named "Ivy." This equipment enables analysis of medical data and other sensitive information that cannot be analyzed on existing High Performance Computing platforms due to security restrictions. This highly flexible computing environment operates as an on-site secure computing cloud that can be reconfigured to support various research groups.
