How to Stay Secure

Computing is an essential part of our day-to-day existence. By becoming aware of possible threats and vulnerabilities, you help to protect UCSC as well as yourself.

What's Required

UC has Minimum Security Standards for all users and devices that access UC data or resources.  Devices that don't meet these standards may be disconnected from the campus network.

Use IT Services to meet these requirements. 

*Using centrally managed Computer Services will meet this requirement. For computers managed within Academic Divisions, contact your Divisional Liaison.
