Security Update: Change in Wireless Access Policy

June 14, 2016  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources,

Please be advised that beginning August 2016, all Wireless Access Points that are not installed, configured, and maintained by MCIT are to be removed from operation in all buildings and real estate owned or rented by UMHS.

Why?

Non-UMHS Wireless Access Points and other devices offering WiFi communications negatively impact the integrity and security of the health system’s network.  

What should you do?

If you are using a non-UMHS Wireless Access Point because you have challenges with wireless access in your location, please contact the Service Desk for an assessment and solution for your area.

Want more information?

Please reference UMHS Policy no. 01-04-508 WiFi Wireless Data Service or call MCIT at extension 6-8000.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
