Ensuring the security and accessibility of technology, data and learning materials in the California community colleges will be the focus of two virtual workshops in January.

Hosted by the CCC Information Security Center and CCC Accessibility Center, the 2022 Winter Workshops will be held January 10-11, 2022. Subject matter is geared toward information technology, disability services, faculty training, and procurement professionals, but all California community college personnel are welcome to attend.

On Monday, January 10, the Information Security Workshop will explore the security threat landscape, and discuss tools and strategies to combat ransomware, risks, other types of attacks and countermeasures.

On Tuesday, January 11, the Accessibility Workshop will take a deep dive into often-requested topics including captioning of videos and live-streams, and techniques for ensuring PDFs are accessible.

The CCC Information Security and Accessibility Workshops are presented each winter and summer to offer effective strategies and practices for maintaining the security of student and college data and ensuring that electronic learning materials are provided in a format that is accessible to all students and members of the campus community. A wide range of topics are covered including laws that inform district policy-making, tools and services available to colleges and how individual colleges have approached or solved specific issues.
