  • Use a screenlock on your mobile devices
  • Keep your mobile devices' operating system and apps up to date with security patches
  • Dispose of old devices in a safe and secure manner so your personal information is not included.
  • Change the default passwords on any "smart" home devices. The "Internet of Things" is very vulnerable to intrusions.

General network and server maintenance will occur every Tuesday from 12 noon to 2:00 PM. The CLASSE-IT group will always announce any expected disruptions in our NewsLetter and via CLASSE-IT-NEWS-L, but with the size and complexity of our network there is always the potential for something to go wrong. We will do our best to contain all network maintenance and planned outages to Tuesdays from 12 noon to 2:00 PM.

Unless other arrangements have been made, CLASSE-managed Windows systems may be updated and rebooted on Tuesday morning at 2:00 AM, so please avoid critical or lengthy operations at that time. For more details, please see SystemExpectations.
