On Wednesday, October 12, ITS will deploy an update to all faculty and staff workstations to improve security. The update will lock your workstation after 25 minutes of inactivity. To unlock your workstation, enter your Norse Key password.
If you use your laptop for presentations, to avoid your laptop locking during the presentation, move the mouse every 15-20 minutes.
ITS recommends you lock your workstation every time you leave your work area, even if only for a couple of minutes. For details on locking your workstation, see “Protect Your Information”.
This additional measure is being implemented to improve security campus-wide. Contact the Technology Help Desk with questions.
