The regulations on the use of university IT resources also apply to working in a home office.
For the security of your data and that of the university, please only work with devices whose operating system and applications have all the latest security patches and which have an up-to-date anti-virus solution.
Separate your personal data from your professional data.
Make sure that no unauthorized third parties gain access to university data, even when working in a home office. This can happen quickly if you share a private device with other family members.
Use the VPN connection into the university network and store data on the university server drives (your group or project drive) if possible.
If you also have data stored locally, please remember to back it up.
Be careful when dealing with email. The current situation is being exploited by hackers in many ways, either by pretending it is an important, urgent mail from your supervisor, or by pretending it is the latest information on the current situation.
Trust only official sources.
