Log Out! We’re Under Attack

IS are responsible for keeping your managed desktop PCs well maintained and secure.

To help us do this we need to ensure that we keep your PC up to date with the latest security patches and software updates.

We can do this – with minimum disruption to you – overnight – when you are not logged in.

Unpatched machines can cause security risks because they: –

  1. are vulnerable to attacks that can compromise your data and personal information
  2. can provide a channel for malicious software to enter the University and attack other parts of the IT Infrastructure

Staff – help us to help you – log out of your PC and leave it logged off overnight at least once a week.owl

Remember – once a week – log out (and take the night off)!
