Your checklist before the Christmas holidays

Your checklist before the Christmas holidays

Before you go home for the Christmas holidays, there are a few things you need to consider to keep your IT network up and running:

๐ŸŽ„ Please donโ€™t turn off your router! If you do, KCOM will try to get hold of you to see why your managed service is down and you might not be there.

๐ŸŽ„ Please notify the KCOM service desk of any planned works over the holidays.

๐ŸŽ„ Ensure all backups and updates are completed before powering down devices for storage.

๐ŸŽ„ Secure all computers and IT equipment.

๐ŸŽ„ Make sure staff have access to the remote desktop (if your school has one) and arenโ€™t taking sensitive material home on unprotected devices such as USBs.

๐ŸŽ„ Make sure to set your Out of Office with contact numbers of who people can contact in an emergency.

Enjoy your break!
