Computer Security Info

All computer users who manage their own systems are responsible for keeping their computers secure. The CNS has means for monitoring and scanning the campus network for potential security problems. They may disconnect from the campus network any systems that they believe have been compromissed or if they believe that a given system possesses a serious security risk to the rest of campus and if the system owner does not fix the problem after a resonable amount of time after the initial warning. In certain cases, insecure systems are disconnected without an initial warning.

The campus System and Network Security Office (SNS) provides links to quick security guide and checklists for various operating systems and applications on their Best Practices web site. We advise everyone who manages their own computers to become familiar with and follow the SNS security guidelines for system administration.
