UCL Computer Security Newsletter - July 2007
The purpose of this newsletter is to keep all security reps and other
interested parties informed about what is happening around UCL
regarding computer security. Further information from the Computer
Security Team is always available at http://www.ucl.ac.uk/cert.
0. CST changes
Please note that CST will have some personnel changes for a year as
from 1st September 2007. Note that we have an advertisement out at
the moment (http://www.ucl.ac.uk/hr/vacancies/adverts/JDG20.html).
This is my last newsletter for a while, although newsletter
production will continue in my absence.
