Happy Holidays from the Office of Technology Services

Office of Technology Services extends our best wishes for a safe and festive holiday season.  Remember that the holiday season is a prime period for hackers and we must all be on guard and protect ourselves from cybercrimes.  We look forward to working with you in 2015!

Holiday Break Tips:

  • Before you leave for the holidays, check your auto reply message on your office phone and email.
  • Update your computer.  Visit www.update.microsoft.com and scan for updates.
  • Turn off your office computer over the break unless you plan to remote access your computer over the break.
  • Enable password protection on your computer and all your mobile devices, including smart phones.
  • Lock your offices and all portable devices left within your office in a secure cabinet.
  • Backup your critical files on your computer to an external hard drive or USB drive.  IT only backs up information stored on the network drive.
  • Keep your anti-virus program updated with the latest virus definition files.
  • Shop online only with reputable vendors. Verify the sender before opening attachments.
  • Do not share personal information, including passwords, bank accounts, social security, credit card information, it is most likely a scam.
