CS Maintenance for tonight + Cybersecurity Tip #2

***Thursday Night Maintenance***

We have several maintenance items scheduled for this evening:

First, beginning at 7:00 PM this evening, we will be reindexing and updating App Xtender.

Then, beginning at 9:00 PM, we will be installing Windows Updates to all PCs on campus. Users are encouraged to log off but leave their computers on when leaving work today to assist in the installation of these patches.

Finally, beginning at 9:30 PM, there may be brief interruptions to several back-end systems and services as we perform updates and reboots as part of the patching and maintenance process. There should be very minimal impact to campus users at this time.

***Cybersecurity Tip #2, It’s Everyone’s Job to Ensure Online Safety at Work***

When you are on the job, ASU’s online safety and security is a responsibility we all share. As the lines between our work and daily lives become increasingly blurred, it is more important than ever to be certain that smart cybersecurity carries over between the two. Check out this infographic from our friends at the National Cyber Security Alliance (staysafeonline.org) for some quick wins that can make you safer at work and more secure at home: NCSAM Infographic.

Computing Services thanks you for your patience and understanding as we perform these critical maintenance activities. As always, if you have any questions, please call the ASU Computing Services Helpdesk at 7741 or contact us via email at computingservices@adams.edu.

Have a great day!
