IT Holiday Checklist

IT Holiday Checklist

Before heading home for the Christmas break, make sure you’ve checked all of the below!

  • Don’t turn off your router! If you do KCOM will be trying to get hold of you to see why your managed service is down and you wont be there.
  • Notify the KCOM service desk of any planned works over the Christmas period such as power downs.
  • Ensure all backups and updates are completed before powering down devices for storage
  • Secure all computers and IT equipment
  • Make sure staff have access to the remote desktop (if your school has one) and aren’t taking sensitive material home on unprotected devices such as USBs
  • Make sure to set your Out of Office with contact numbers of who people can contact in an emergency
  • Make sure you book onto your Safe Online Workshop for 2018
  • Enjoy a well-deserved cup of your favourite mulled beverage and a mince pie!

 

We’ll look forward to seeing you in 2018, if you need any support over holidays, please check online for contact numbers.
