COVID-19 update: Cyber Security and working from home

Submitted by on 2020/04/22 – 8:30 am

With much of Canada’s workforce working outside their organizations’ IT security perimeters, the Canadian Centre for Cyber Security recently stated that cyber attackers are more frequently and aggressively looking to exploit teleworking connections.

MacEwan University is no exception – it’s more important than ever for all of us to take extra precautions to ensure that our home working environments are secure. MacEwan’s Information Security office urges you to review the Cyber Security Checklist: Working from Home on the university portal. Find the Cyber Security Checklist in the Tech Support segment of the university portal.
