Our Information Security Awareness Training partner, NINJIO, just released an out-of-cycle episode focusing on securely working from home.  Take a moment to watch this Public Service Announcement from NINJIO, with guest star Jon Lovitz.

Now that Cal Poly has transitioned to working remotely and virtual classrooms during the current pandemic, it’s important to continue working securely while working remotely. Ensure your Windows PC, Mac, mobile devices, and antivirus are up to date. The Cal Poly VPN is also available for accessing any campus-only websites and resources.

Visit Faculty and Staff Guide for Remote Work to ensure you have access to all the campus resources you need while working remotely.

Finally, many malicious actors are exploiting the pandemic by sending Coronavirus-related phishing emails. Be wary of any messages asking you to click links or open attachments, and report suspicious messages to the Information Security Office.

The Cal Poly College of Engineering understands there has been an enormous amount of turmoil and transition due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). As we continue offering support to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends, we also continue providing critical updates as well as college highlights. Ours is a college full of creative and bright engineers and staff. For more information on COVID-19 visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
