  • These services requested thru the SR process must be approved costs money Examples; HATS HONURS
  • These services requested thru the SR process must be approved costs money
  • This is the way NASA travels only way to get tickets to get travel approved To get voucher approved after travel, in order to get reimbursed Access must be requested – Use HONURS here to make the point (will talk about HONURS later) Always call 358-HELP To schedule training To report problems/questions Barbara Birch is the Travel Manager help desk
  • Directory service for all of NASA (all centers) To update record Send e-mail to update( hq.nasa.gov will be filled in automatically) Change directly on the Web site Full legal name MUST be entered as one of your “common” names Because of the integration with financial systems here at NASA; i.e. Travel manager systems seek validation with a “complete legal name”.

  • 05/04/10
  • 05/04/10 When you change the location of a meeting or change the time/date of a meeting you will want to notify the attendees – right? Well be careful, when you finish changing the meeting and click Save & Close , Outlook will ask if you want to notify the attendees by displaying the following dialog box. In order to notify the attendees of your changes to the meeting you must reply Yes to the dialog box. Replying No will result in the attendees not being notified and your calendars will now be out of sync – your calendar will reflect the changes but the other attendees’ calendars will not. You will be prompted with this message each time you make a change and click Save & Close – a yes response will send the latest (current) location and date/time to the attendees and put the calendars back in sync.
  • 05/04/10 When you cancel a meeting you will want to notify the attendees and release any Resources that have been scheduled for the meeting – right? Well be careful, when you finish canceling the meeting and click Send , Outlook will ask if you would like to notify the attendees that the meeting has been cancelled. In order to notify the attendees that you have cancelled the meeting you must reply “ Send cancellation and delete meeting .” to the dialog box. Replying “Delete without sending a cancellation.” will result in the attendees not being notified and your calendars will now be out of sync –your calendar will not reflect the meeting but the other attendees’ will (since you didn’t send a cancellation notice). The result is that the other attendees and Resource Calendars now have an “orphaned” meeting which they have to individually cancel since the cancelled meeting is no longer on your calendar for you to delete.
  • These are applications you may hear mentioned. If you have questions about using these applications call your IT POC or IT&CD
  • For limited: If you think you will require evening/weekend support call the help desk ahead of time for best method
  • Someone will contact you If you do not return the phone call the ticket is placed on “hold” until user contact is made Work stoppage aka critical uplift service should be used judiciously Last year approximately 2500 tickets 700 surveys approx 20 negative results 5 levels of happiness top two only give positive response other three (including ‘good’) is considered negative If you are dissatisfied with services provided contact Noah Nason
  • When calling into the Help desk on the weekend please follow the instructions on phone tree

  • If you need to be present when support technician calls and you are not there. Please respond back with a mutually agreeable time. Broken appointments result in ticket being put on hold and then closed. If you do not want the technician to work on your computer while you are not there you must so inform the Help Desk.

  • Anti-Spam/Anti-Virus
    • All incoming e-mail passes through the SPAM Firewall before entering NASA Headquarters e-mail systems
    • Based on policy settings, the SPAM Firewall:
      • allows the e-mail to pass through
      • deletes the e-mail
      • or quarantines the e-mail
    • Incoming e-mail with any of the following characteristics is deleted:
      • contains a known virus
      • contains file attachments with known Microsoft-OS executable file extensions
      • is sent from an Internet domain whose sole intent is known to be the generation of unsolicited junk e-mail
  • Anti-Spam/Anti-Virus Cont’d
    • Incoming e-mail that has a high probability of being unsolicited junk e-mail is quarantined:
      • This prevents e-mail from cluttering up your e-mail in-box or handheld device
      • You will receive regular e-mail notifications about your e-mail being held in the quarantine, and will be able to retrieve or delete these messages yourself
    • You can “train” the SPAM Firewall when it makes a mistake
      • specify Internet addresses or domain names that should always be able to send you mail (“Safe Sender”)
      • or addresses or domains that should never be able to send you mail (“Blocked Sender”)
  • User Digest
  • Junk Mail Folder
    • It is impossible to stop ALL SPAM
    • Should a piece of SPAM pass through the SPAM Firewall and arrive in your Outlook/Entourage inbox, you can use the built in SPAM filters in Outlook and Entourage to “train” these programs to further reduce the amount of SPAM you receive
    • Outlook/Entourage SPAM filters can be trained to stop almost 99.9% of all SPAM
      • Tools, Options, Preferences, Junk E-Mail… in Outlook
      • Tools, Junk E-Mail Protection… in Entourage
  • Junk Mail Folder Cont’d
    • Set the level of protection you want:
      • Low, catches the most obvious Junk mail
      • High, catches most junk mail, but may also trap legitimate messages
      • Safe Lists Only/Exclusive, only allows messages from people/domains you designate as safe, or from your Address Book/Contacts; all other mail goes directly to the Junk Mail folder
    • You can “train” this SPAM filter in Outlook and Entourage when it makes a mistake
      • Outlook:
        • In the Junk Mail Folder….right-click…Mark as Not Junk
        • In Inbox, right-click…. Add Sender to Blocked Senders List
      • Entourage:
        • In the Junk Mail Folder, select the message(s), click on Message, Mark as Not Junk
        • In the Inbox, select the message(s), click on Message, Mark as Junk

      • Activities are scheduled by Owners, Authors, and Editors via the “Open a Shared Calendar” link
      • Should Not be DELEGATED
  • Calendar Idiosyncrasies – Changing A Meeting
    • Changing A Meeting
      • Always choose Send Update
      • If you choose Save & Close, you will be prompted to send update
      • Save & Close ONLY updates your own calendar, not those of meeting attendees!
  • Calendar Idiosyncrasies – Canceling A Meeting
    • Always send a cancellation notice
      • If you Delete without sending a cancellation, ONLY your own calendar will be updated, not those of meeting attendees!
  • Calendar Idiosyncrasies – Disappearing Meetings
    • If you access your account on more than one computer (via Outlook, OWA, or Citrix) and accept a meeting on one, do not delete the invitation on the other(s).
    • Doing so could remove the meeting from your calendar!
  • Calendar Idiosyncrasies – The “Sniffer”
    • Always accept meeting invitations from your Inbox
    • Outlook uses the “Sniffer” to place an invitation tentatively on your calendar until you accept.
    • The Sniffer does not send a response to the organizer – only you can do that by clicking Accept, Tentative, or Decline.
  • Calendar Idiosyncrasies – Inviting Others
    • If you know of another who should attend a meeting for which you are not the organizer
      • Send the organizer an e-mail or call them to let them know
      • Do not forward the invitation – forwarding does not update the invitation for everyone!

  • Sensitive Information Protection Awareness Training
    • Office of Management & Budget (OMB) memo M-06-16 (Appendix B in handout) required Agencies to take 4 actions with respect to Personally Identifiable Information (PII):
      • Encrypt data on mobile computers
      • Require 2-factor (token/SmartCard) authentication for remote access (Implemented at HQ)
      • Implement “time-out” limits after 30 minutes of inactivity (Implemented at HQ)
      • Track/Log all computer-readable extracts of PII data from databases, and erase within 90 days (unless still needed).
    • Emphasis on sensitive information that is either:
      • Accessed remotely
      • Physically transported outside of Agency’s facility
    • Incident reporting requirement of 1 hour from time of discovery
    • NASA and the Federal Government already have applicable penalties of written reprimand to removal for 1 st time offenders, 1 to 3 days suspension or removal for 2 nd offenses and 7 days suspension to removal for 3 rd offense. Federal consequences include fines of $3000.00.
    What and Why? 1
    • Personally Identifiable Information (PII)
    • Any information that identifies or can be used to identify, contact, or locate the person to whom such information pertains.
    • This includes information that is used in a way that is personally identifiable, including linking it with identifiable information from other sources, or from which other personally identifiable information can easily be derived, including, but not limited to, name, address, phone number, fax number, e-mail address, demographic information such as age, income, and zip code, financial profiles, social security number, and credit card information.
    • To the extent unique information (which by itself is not Personally Identifiable Information) such as a personal profile, unique identifier, biometric information, and IP address is associated with Personally Identifiable Information, then such unique information is also considered Personally Identifiable Information.
    • Personally Identifiable Information does not include information that is collected anonymously (i.e., without identification of the individual user) or demographic information not connected to an identified individual.
    What is PII? 2
    • Laptops and external hard drives are required to use the following mechanisms to protect PII on the desktop and laptop:
      • PC: Entrust ICE
      • Mac: File Vault
    • Entrust is the Agency tool for e-mail encryption. Mac customers will need Entrust to encrypt/un-encrypt e-mails.
    Agency Solution 3
  • Entrust
    • Entrust is a family of products that allow you to encrypt and digitally sign documents.
    • You can encrypt documents for yourself or for sending to someone else.

  • Appendices
    • Data Backup
  • Data Backup
  • Why Back Up Your Data?
    • Hard Drives can fail
      • Not common, particularly among HQ users
      • There have been several the past
    • Protect your data by backing it up
  • How Often Should You Back Up Your Data?
    • Back up your data as frequently as you cannot afford to do it over
      • This could be every day, or less frequently, depending upon your work needs
    • In either case, you can use your Calendar or Tasks to set reminders to help you stay on top of managing your mail and data backups
  • What Should You Back Up?
    • Aside from your mail (PST file), you should also back up:
      • Critical work data
      • Your Entrust Profile folder, if you have one
      • Templates you have created locally
      • Favorites from your Web browser
      • Any other files/folders you cannot afford to lose
  • Backing Up Your E-mail
    • Server Folders vs. Personal Folders
      • Data in the Server folders is backed up on a regular basis
        • You have a mailbox quota of 100 Mb
        • You must manage the mail you store on the server in order to stay within your quota
        • This may require you to periodically move mail to your Personal Folders, or to an Archive file
      • Data in your Personal Folders is not backed up automatically
        • You must manually back it up to an appropriate location for long term, secure storage
        • The appropriate locations are detailed later in this presentation
  • Mailbox Folders
    • Server folders are listed under your Mailbox name, usually at the top of the folder list
    • Personal folders are listed under Personal Folders, usually below your server folders
    Server Folders
  • Outlook Auto-archiving vs. Manual Archiving
    • Auto-archiving - designed to be a local backup of data that is overwritten by new data at regular intervals
      • The default interval is every 14 days
      • The defaults can be changed by using Tools, Options in Outlook
    • Should I use Auto-archive?
      • If you do not need to keep data older than 14 days
      • OR
      • If you rename and copy these archive files to long term, secure storage, you can take advantage of the Auto-archive feature
  • Auto-archiving vs. Manual Archiving, Continued
    • Manual Archiving – allows you full control over what, where, and when to archive
      • If you need to keep data for longer periods
      • OR
      • If you want to control file naming and whether the files are overwritten, you can change the Auto-archive settings to manually archive your mail
  • Archiving Hints
    • Regardless of whether you choose to Auto-archive or Manually Archive your mail:
      • Do not change the default location where the archive.pst file is created and retrieved by Outlook
        • If you read the file from a network location, your archived mail could become corrupted!
      • Rename the file when you copy it to another storage location
      • OR
      • Label/date the media if you back up to CD-ROM or DVD/R, so that you can easily locate the file you need
  • Backing Up Your PST File
    • Your PST file in Outlook/Entourage is where the mail in your Personal Folders is stored
    • File is typically too large to fit on a standard issue flash drive (256 Mb)
      • You may request a larger capacity flash drive (2 or 4 Gb); see your IT POC to request one
      • You may burn the file to a CD-ROM or a DVD/R (if you have a DVD burner on your system)
      • You may save it to your User folder on the Network (T: drive)
  • Backing Up Your Data
    • Where can you store your data?
      • Flash drive
      • CD-ROM
      • Hard drive
      • Network folders
  • Where Can You Store Your Data?
    • Flash drives
      • Temporary storage used for data transfer
    • CD-ROMs
      • Longer term storage or for data transfer
    • Local Hard drive
      • Long term storage
    • Network folders
      • Long term storage, data transfer between users, or for data transfer between computer systems
  • Flash Drives – Pros & Cons
    • Pros:
      • Fast, fairly high capacity (256 Mb standard; 2 – 4 Gb available), durable, and compact
      • Ideal for transporting data from one physical location to another
      • Nearly universal availability of USB support means they can be used almost anywhere
    • Cons:
      • Volatile; can sustain only a limited number of write/erase cycles before failure
      • Can be damaged by misuse; typically occurs through repeated incorrect removal of device, causing loose circuit connections
  • CD-ROM or DVD/R Pros & Cons
    • Pros:
      • Higher capacity than flash drives – standard CD-ROM holds 650 or 700 Mb of data
      • Single layer DVD/R can store 4.7 Gb, which is around 7 times as much as a standard CD-ROM
      • Relatively easy to use
      • Less volatile storage medium
    • Cons:
      • Must be handled and stored carefully to prevent damage to the media itself
  • Hard Drive – Pros & Cons
    • Pros:
      • Less volatile
      • High capacity
