Information Security - How do I secure my device - Securing your computer

Many security measures have already been taken on a UU-PC. You have that responsibility on your own PC. This is very important if you are working with UU-data. If you have a virus on your private PC, it is possible that all your own and all your UU data is encrypted.

This way you minimize the risks

  • All measures as for a UU managed workplace
  • Install a virus scanner like McAfee or Kaspersky. They also provide protection for browsing the Internet and your email. SURFspot (log in with your Solis-id) gives you a discount as an student.
  • Update your operating system (enable automatic updates)
  • Put a password on your own PC and/or laptop
  • Use a VPN to encrypt your data traffic when connecting to public Wi-Fi
