Your Home Office
The following are things to keep in mind while you are working from home:
- Location: Is your computer screen viewable through a ground level window? Ex: A ground-level window should NOT be facing the direction of your computer screen
- GRCC Device
~Be sure only YOU are using your GRCC computer/laptop
~Keep your device UPDATED – You might need to go to the Admin parking lot – It takes about 30 minutes to Download Updates – You only need to stay until the updates say Install Pending
- Secure your home Wi-Fi
~Be sure a strong password is set for when you connect to your Wi-Fi
~Change the default Admin credentials that come on your network device to a new username and password
~Update the firmware/allow for automatic updates
- Keep devices such as Alexa, Google Home, and baby monitors away from your work space – These could potentially acquire GRCC sensitive information discussed during a conference call.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at ITSecurity@grcc.edu.
