Comment like this from ...could it be a UCB Associate Chancellor?
Inside Higher Ed now covering:
U of Big Brother?U of California professors object to new system -- installed secretly -- to monitor emails and use of computer networks. University cites security needs and pledges to protect privacy.
"Hermalin said that he did not know about the new system until a few faculty members came to him in December and said they had learned about it. He has, since then, been trying to learn more. He said that he has yet to find answers to key questions. "What is being collected has never been clear," he said. "And how it will be gotten rid of" when no longer needed is also unclear. These are big questions, he said, that would normally be discussed through the faculty governance process."
"Steve Montiel, press secretary for the UC Office of the President, asked about the issue of faculty consultation, said via email: "There is and has been ongoing faculty and campus consultation regarding steps taken to counter cyberthreats to locations across the UC system. Faculty voices have been included on the committee that's guiding our cybersecurity strategy.""
