If you use a smart phone or other mobile device at work or to access work email, you should take some precautions to improve the security of that device.
- Never store sensitive information. The College’s Written Information Security Program prohibits the storage of confidential information on mobile devices.
- Keep software updated. To avoid a potential virus, keep the device software up-to-date.
- Set an access password. Require a password to be entered in order for the device to be used.
- Lock device after inactivity. Set the device to lock automatically after a period of inactivity and require the password to regain access.
