Computer security

Antivirus software is installed on all machines running the Managed Desktop Service.

We endeavour to keep the University safe from virus attack or malicious email and hackers, but everyone should be aware of the potential dangers. Members of the University who are using machines which are not running our Windows service are particularly vulnerable and must keep up to date with software patches and virus signature updates.

As a member of the University you have full and free access to the Internet and email but you are required to follow the regulations of the University regarding its use.

For your own security you should be careful when receiving e-mail attachments, even when the e-mail comes from someone you know and trust; you cannot be sure they have sent it themselves and they may have been infected by a virus, which was sent under their name.
