  • May-June 2022 Newsletter, Volume 168

    Published: Sat 02 Jul 2022 04:57PM UTC Comments: 0

    In light of the malicious email attacks against OTW volunteers that took place in early May, teams across the OTW have been working to improve our internal processes to protect volunteers' privacy and secure sensitive data. The Board of Directors has been continually liaising with committees, including Legal, to deal with the ongoing aftermath of these attacks. Likewise, the Board discussed with Strategic Planning integrating data security into the OTW's upcoming Strategic Plan. A draft of the proposed new strategic plan has been sent to all chairs for review and feedback, and Strategic Planning is working on incorporating the feedback it has already received into the plan draft. The vision statement for the plan is still in the works for posting to the OTW’s website with the help of Communications and Translation. Stay tuned!

The posts express each volunteer's personal views and do not necessarily reflect the views of the OTW or constitute OTW policy. Today's post is with Rosa, who volunteers as a Translation volunteer for Team Swedish.
