Recent malware attacks and administrative access
In light of recent cyber security attacks responsible for taking down major systems at some higher education institutions, Information Technology will be implementing security measures designed to protect Skidmore from the increased risk of ransomware and other attacks which put the College, users and data at risk. In addition to the rollout of dual-factor authentication, Skidmore will be changing how administrative access on institutional hardware is made.
Effective May 31, you must contact the Help Desk before installing applications on your Skidmore laptop or PC. The User Services team has the tools and will coordinate with you directly in order to assist you in the installations of those applications. This will allow all of us to continue to use our computers to meet our needs while safeguarding our community.
If you have any questions about this change or would like to know more about what IT is doing to limit the risks of cyber security attacks, please contact Chief Technology Officer Dwane Sterling.
