SPSS Statistics is the most widely used statistics package at UT. It does a broad range of statistics and graphics, and it is easy to learn and use. It is also easy to transfer data from SPSS into R or SAS to access any esoteric analyses. While most users prefer the SPSS easy-to-use GUI interface, more advanced users can take advantage of its programming language.
The SPSS programming language can be used to automate repetitive tasks, to leave an audit trail of the steps you took, and to get the package to do something that it was not originally designed to do.
Learn more about SPSS on UTHSC's ITS Research Software website. Learn when to use it, where to run it, how to learn, and where to get help.

Microsoft Teams no longer supports Internet Explorer 11 (IE11), as of November 30, 2020. This means that customers will have a degraded experience or will be unable to connect to Microsoft 365 apps and services on IE11.
For degraded experiences, new Microsoft 365 features will not be available or certain features may cease to work when accessing the app or service via IE11.
Now is good time to switch to Google Chrome, FireFox, and Microsoft Edge. Visit UTHSC ITS website for more information.
Lean 6 Sigma
We all have customers, and we all are customers.
Never forget that you have customers, but that you are also a customer. If you want to succeed in any project, it’s important to be upfront about what you need from your sponsor, colleagues, process owners, related departments or other suppliers.
Always communicate your needs clearly and explain the impact on your project and the organization should any of your suppliers fail. That way those who are critical to your success can’t adopt a ‘no impact so no problem if I don’t deliver’ mind set. Visit the Lean UTHSC website for more information.

Bad Guys are Increasing Their Efforts
The Office of Cybersecurity has a team of analysts that monitor activity on our network and who comes knocking on our doors. As the holiday season approaches, we’ve seen an increase in hackers’ efforts to gain access to UTHSC that our community should be aware of.
During the holidays, criminals know staff take vacation, or organizations have down time, but our systems remain running. Organizations often “slow down” during this time of the year, but the criminal hackers increase their efforts.
We have other factors; the federal government recently announced an increased effort to infect medical facilities with ransomware and there has been evidence of this occurring across the nation, and successful attacks.
There is the news of a COVID vaccine; from the cybersecurity office, every time there is an announcement about one of our researchers, providers, or COVID we see an immediate and exponential increase in attacks on UTHSC as seen below.
Stealing, or even guessing, users’ credentials is an easy access to our network. Because of this, one area we monitor is the number of failed O365 login attempts outside of the U.S. This past week, there were 246 failed foreign login attempt, a 13.89% increase from the previous week.
We also monitor what we call reconnaissance events, or activities where outsiders are attempting to identify our exposures and weaknesses. We’ve seen 110,000 events this past week, a 53.2% increase from the previous week.
This information is intended for awareness and to identify areas of opportunities where we can increase our security controls. If you see any suspicious or odd behavior, contact the Office of Cybersecurity at firstname.lastname@example.org or 901.448.1880. We want to know about it.
