Supported PC policy

Posted by rmt22 at Feb 20, 2017 02:44 PM |
All staff with University-owned computers are reminded to adhere to the new Supported PC policy.

The University has increased the support it provides to members of staff who have University-owned computers to ensure greater protection of your work and data.

All computers are now required to have effective security, storage and backup before connecting to the University’s IT network.

Whether you use a University PC, Mac or Linux computer, you now have access to free software that provides greater protection for your work. Lost data can pose challenges for individuals, teams and the wider University, and so this support programme, which has been driven by the University’s Leadership Team (ULT), has been developed to help mitigate against these problems.

The Supported PC programme supports all University computers with enterprise strength security to reduce risk and remove the security burden from the individual user.

If you have a University computer that is not fully managed, you will be contacted by an IT Professional in the near future with information on how to adhere to this policy. You can visit the Supported PC project website for more information. We have also emailed Heads of Department and senior managers asking them to cascade this information.

Please note: all University staff are expected to adhere to this policy by Easter 2017.
