Protecting your equipment

For your own and others’ safety it is important to protect your IT equipment. Failure to do so may not only result in your data or money being stolen, but could also enable hackers to exploit your computer, phone, tablet or internet connection to do harm to others.

The universities workspaces and servers are equipped with various measures to prevent abuse. Updates will be installed automatically, a virus scanner checks the files being accessed, and unknown software cannot be used without additional action. All these measures still assume responsible use of the facilities, with you being aware of risks and avoiding these whenever possible.

Besides the EUR facilities you may also be using your own equipment to do your work for the university. In that case this equipment needs to be properly protected too.
