Blackboard Ally – Kathy Fernandes, Leon McNaught-

Presentation to the Executive Committee from Kathy Fernandes and Leon McNaught about
Blackboard Ally. Blackboard Ally is an awareness tool that integrates seamlessly into the
Blackboard Learning Management System (LMS) and focuses on making digital course
content more accessible. Instructors are given a dashboard that provides insight into the
accessibility of their course materials. In addition, the Ally tool can automatically
generate alternate electronic formats of course materials, such as EPUB, plaintext, audio,
tagged PDF, HTML, and electronic braille.

Wireless Networks Policy Review-

VP Samuel Sudhakar presented the latest version of the Wireless Networks Policy the Executive
Committee with modifications made after the last Administrative Council meeting. There was a
suggestion to incorporate language about the Acceptable Use Policy providing the framework in
the last paragraph. The policy was approved by the Executive Committee with the recommended
amendment.

Network Security Management Recommendation-

Director Javier Torner presented housekeeping changes and updates to the CSUSB Network
Security Management Standard that has been in place since 2008. This standard was

Security Policies and Standard (ICSUIAM Sections 8050, 8055, 8060) on network
security management and change control. The only major change presented was the
scope. The change is to not only cover servers/machines on campus but also to include
the resources on cloud. The recommendation was approved by the Executive Committee.

Information Authorities and Custodians Recommendation-

Director Javier Torner presented housekeeping changes and updates to the CSUSB Information
Authorities and Custodians Standard that identifies those individuals who have the
responsibility for the protection of specific university records. This standard was adopted

(ICSUIAM Sections 8065, 8065.S001) on Information Asset Management. The major
changes are the updates in terms of changing roles in departments. The recommendation
was approved by the Executive Committee with one amendment from University
