If you have been issued a Fleming laptop, use this for all Fleming work. These computer have been pre-configured with the device security protections below. Similar to campus PCs, ITS can remotely assist with trouble-shooting these computers as needed. If you don’t have a Fleming issued laptop and need to work from a personal non-Fleming computer, follow these tips to ensure a secure work environment that protects College data and your Fleming account.
- Ensure antivirus software is in place and up to date.
- Check that all operating system and software updates are applied.
- Encrypt your hard drive.
- Use a password protected computer dedicated for your use only, not shared with other family members. If not possible, create separate password protected profile for each family member to ensure isolated user data and settings.
- Lock your computer when not in use.
- Never allow your web browser to save your Fleming password or when accessing any Fleming resources.
- Avoid downloading and saving any College data onto your personal computer. Use web applications where possible. Office365 can edit files that reside in the OneDrive cloud storage, no need to download/upload files locally.
- Use Fleming’s VDI service. VDI uses your local computer’s keyboard, mouse and monitor, but all applications & data reside on a secure Fleming virtual desktop, located at Fleming’s data centre.
- Do not print Fleming documents at home unless absolutely necessary; if you do print documents, ensure that they are properly managed by securing them in files to bring back to the college. Documents that are no longer needed can be shredded or stored and returned to the college for secure disposal once it is opened up again.
