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.

UCSF welcomes people with disabilities to our events and programs. To request a reasonable accommodation, please contact Esther Silver by emailing as soon as possible. The webinars will include live automated captioning in Zoom.

This Event is Part of UC's Celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Click here to see additional information about this event and the many other events occurring throughout the month of October.
