In today’s computing environment the security challenges are daunting and endless. We as IT professionals can only do so much, but the user population can do a great deal to help attain the safety that is required to fight off the thousands of attacks and millions of spam and malicious emails we receive weekly. There have been numerous times where a vigilant user has caught an exploit and also informed us so we can take steps to eliminate the potential. This is the type of help we need and will continue to need even more as we move forward.

We would like to thank all of you and encourage you to become more vigilant and at the same time assist us with making the System more secure. The link below brings you to the current Information Security Policies. Please read and follow the policies as outlined. As always if you have questions about this or any IT policy please email us at .
