IT Services has created a Guide for Deploying Digital Solutions in UCD for those considering investing in or deploying digital solutions in their workplace. This covers not only technical and security guidelines, but also things like procurement, data protection and support, as well as links to relevant university principles and policies.
In order to make it easier for staff to adhere to UCD’s Device Protection Policy, IT Services has rolled out the first phase of the Device Health project whereby a security posture check is undertaken on the devices being used by staff to access university systems, with information for the staff member on how to rectify issues found. In 2024, the next phase will be initiated which will take a further step towards safeguarding the university systems from being accessed by insecure devices.
