Zoom contest brings out ISO staff's creative side

Chris Stucker nonchalantly joined a recent Zoom meeting with a nifty new background. Stucker, associate director of the Identity & Access Management team, customized it with the Information Security Office's padlock logo prominently featured in the top-left corner.

"It sparked an idea that maybe we could throw it out as a team-building thing — 'Here's Chris's version, can you do better?'" Chief Information Security Officer Corey Roach said.

The winner of the contest, open to ISO staff and voted on via Google Survey, would receive a DoorDash gift certificate and Roach's word that he'd use it in the UIT C-Team’s next Zoom meeting.

Shown below are the prize-winning submission from Laurent Lecointre, a data security analyst in Governance, Risk & Compliance, and other entries, including one from Roach, who took himself out of the running. The last image is the UIT C-Team’s response to the animated background.

May they inspire your teams to find fun ways to connect while working from home.
