Accessibility and Security Cross-section

Tuesday, October 4, 2022 11 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Hosted by UCSF

Does cybersecurity make IT less accessible for people with disabilities? Does accessibility make IT less secure? Or can there be a way for both to work together to make technology in the UC system more accessible AND more secure? In this conversation-starting webinar, panelists from both groups will talk about ways in which collaboration between accessibility and cybersecurity can and should happen, and why both need to be taken into account when planning, developing, buying, and/or implementing new technologies.

Accessibility and Cybersecurity are both important considerations, particularly in inclusive yet cyber-vulnerable environments like those in the University of California system. Typically, conversations on these two topics are completely separate, but today we're bringing them together in a panel discussion to increase understanding and awareness of both sets of needs. With some effort and collaboration, it's possible to make technology both more accessible and more secure.

Episode 15: Monique makes a terrific buddy. She’s reliable and generous and, as it turns out, a bit gullible too. These are admirable qualities in a friend but also make her a perfect target for someone with less charitable motives.
