Computer Security Awareness: This Is A Test!
When it comes to computer security, there always seems to be an unfortunate incident lurking in the immediate past or the immediate future. Fermilab has been the scene of another unfortunate incident recently, prompting the need for heightened awareness of security issues and procedures.
All lab employees and visitors are asked to take a few minutes today to complete the following simple computer security awareness checklist. This will help ensure that you understand some basic principles and are following proper computer security practices. (We'll help you out with one small hint: the correct answer to questions 1 through 8 is YES.)
More detailed information about particular topics will follow in subsequent articles; some additional information about each question can be seen by following the web links.
Computer Security Awareness checklist:
Local system administration and registration
Has that local system administrator (perhaps yourself) registered your machine and his/her identity in the lab's computing equipment database (so that he/she can be quickly notified of urgent computer security issues concerning your machine)?
Reporting suspected computer security incidents
Do you know how to report a suspected computer security incident?
