It takes more than anti-virus software to safeguard DIT’s computing resources and data. It takes you. Taking steps to secure your computer not only helps keep your data safe, it demonstrates your commitment to protecting the Institute network and all data created, stored, and shared over the network by DIT staff and students.
While the IS Department as well as College IT staff have responsibility for the administration of the IT service, ultimately you are responsible for taking care of your computer and guarding the information it holds. Following security guidelines and good business practices is part of doing your job.
It is the responsibility of everyone who uses a computer at work or at home to protect DIT data. Any DIT data on your computer is Institute property that has been placed in your care.
