REMAIN VIGILANT! Please Be Aware of an Increase in Cyberattacks at UC Riverside

UC Riverside is a prime target of attacks from cybercriminals, including but not limited to phishing, ransomware, and job offer scams. Some of these attacks have already claimed victims at UCR this year. The financial, mental, and emotional toll of cyber crime is immense, which is why ITS wants to remind the Highlander community to follow cybersmart practices and remain vigilant when using technology.

Research IT Leaders (RITL) Committee

RITL is a subcommittee of the Campus IT Leaders (CITL) committee. Its purpose is to bridge the gap of siloed research support on campus. Allowing for a clear picture of what resources are available to researchers on and off-campus. RITL helps to reduce the duplication of resources, training, and effort and aligns research support allowing collaboration across campus. We informally share information, needs, strategic initiatives, and ideas. We work to increase the accessibility of the research support landscape at UCR. 

The RITL mailing list ( is used for discussion and research support coordination. RITL meets quarterly via zoom. The schedule and meeting notes are below.
