Working offsite

If you are processing University data from outside of the University's networks, please read the University Secretary's information on processing data off campus page and also the Security measures page, which suggests physical security arrangements and safeguards, amongst other useful advice.
Don't Do
  • Don't process restricted UOB data on a non-UOB computer.
  • Do request to use a UOB-owned laptop or other hardware if necessary.
  • Do read and understand the Office of the University Secretary's information on processing data off campus (use the link above).
  • Don't set your browser to save passwords for you (especially UOB passwords).
  • Do use private browsing mode and/or regularly erase your browsers history - especially if you're using a public computer.
  • Don't needlessly transport UOB data from one site to another - and never transport restricted or personal data unless it's encrypted. View encryption advice.
  • Don't copy data in bulk when you only need a bit of it.
  • Do only copy the data that you need to do the job in hand. 
  • Don't use public computers to access any University services that require you to log on: public PCs in hotels, airports, Internet cafes and libraries are almost always infected with malware.
  • Do be cautious about using anyone else's computer to access University services that require you to log in.
