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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
