I want to welcome you to the new Weinberg College IT Newsletter. The purpose of this communication is to raise awareness about IT services and to share information about best practices for computing, data management, and security. You can expect a new issue every quarter, with upcoming issues covering some of our new projects and service improvements. You will have the opportunity to sign up for more frequent topical communication, starting with Alex Ruiz’s blog on Information Security.
