To enhance information security, we call your attention to the following important dates for which you will want to be prepared:
By September 30, 2017 – a Smart phone, iPad, or tablet that is accessing email and other O365 applications must have a PIN setup. A 4-digit (or larger) PIN for mobile devices will be required after this date.
By December 20, 2017 – all UIW-related electronic files should be uploaded to an individual or shared OneDrive folder. Files created or used in the context of your employment with UIW should be stored within the UIW information architecture. OneDrive is now the university’s digital file storage service under contract. Personal and consumer-grade cloud services are not within the university’s prescribed architecture and business use of such services should be discontinued. If off-line access (no Internet connection) to your files is desired, then download the OneDrive client for your Windows or Macintosh computer and synchronize the file folders. Tablet and smart phone access to your cloud OneDrive is secure and easy with a wifi connection. UIW-related files residing in the following possible locations or other locations, should be moved to a OneDrive folder. Want to know more? Sign up for one of the training sessions by clicking here.
