Dynamic working - device care

When remote working it is important that we keep our devices up-to-date and secure. This process requires regular restarts and connecting to the University network via the VPN service (Virtual Private Network).

Required action 

  1. Connect your device to the VPN and continue to work while connected for at least an hour or so. We recommend that this is done at least once a week to complete any updates and policy changes that are required. 
  2. Restart your laptop on a regular basis to install updates, deploy policy changes and apply security fixes. This also applies if working on campus. Completing these tasks will help reduce issues when returning to campus, ensuring a smoother transition between dynamic and campus working.
