Cyber Security Tip Of The Day

Don’t move equipment such as printers and computers between campus network jacks without checking first with ITS.  The college network is segmented into many sections with different purposes and security levels.  It’s possible that moving a device from one side of the room to another, and plugging it into a different jack, will cause the device to lose its functionality and possibly even open a security hole.  If something needs to be moved, please call the ITS Help Desk at Ext. 2299.
