Information services is committed to providing a secure computing environment for all staff, faculty and students. Protecting personal information stored in campus databases and on campus computers is a critical responsibility and requires each user to follow the acceptable use and secure use policies as outlined by the University.
Mobile device security including that for laptops, tablets, and smart phones is of particular importance. All mobile devices, whether personal or University-owned, need to be protected by a secure passcode or password. The University has purchased Frontdoor anti-theft software, available free to all staff, faculty, and students, to help protect and prevent mobile device theft. In addition, all mobile computers connected to the University network need to use anti-virus software.
