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:
🎄 Please don’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.
🎄 Please notify the KCOM service desk of any planned works over the holidays.
🎄 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.
Enjoy your break!
