Wireless in your Office

Faculty and staff should not install their own wireless access points.  Introducing access points into the network is like installing new doors or windows without locks on a building without ever telling the owner. Access points which have been set up without ITS involvement, may not be properly secured from the Internet and other potential rogue users. If not managed properly, they could be a direct violation of several of the HIPAA security regulations and pose significant risk to the integrity of the network system.

Departments interested in wireless should contact the ITS Coordinators (9-3000). ITS handles each wireless request on a case-by-case basis.
