Remote Security Practices

CaTS understands that many faculty and staff have been, or will be, working remotely during these difficult times. Ideally, all university business should be conducted on a university-owned computer. However, during the current crisis that isn't always possible or realistic. If you must use a personally-owned computer, please keep the following in mind:

  • Make certain you have up-to-date antivirus software installed on your computer
  • Keep your system up-to-date by installing operating system updates
  • NEVER save university data locally
  • If you routinely deal with sensitive data, use VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) rather than VPN

If you have questions about keeping yourself secure remotely, contact the CaTS Help Desk at
