The Good Practice Symposium was organised by The Quality Enhancement Unit in October. The symposium was open to all UCC staff and students and aimed to highlight the great work that is carried out by the UCC community and to share instances of Good Practice from which others can learn from.  Noelette Hurley represented IT Services and showcased "Securing UCC’s data and information landscape" at the symposium.
