Secure Your Personal Computer

If you use a personally-owned computer for U-M work, or you manage a university-owned computer, then you are responsible for properly securing it. 

Your computer may contain personal and private information - notes, photos, contacts, documents, saved passwords, and more. You may work with sensitive university data on your computer.

If you use a university or departmentally managed computer, such as a MiWorkspace computer or Michigan Medicine CoreImage computer, then your security settings are likely managed for you.

Note: Effective April 27, 2017, all devices connecting to the 802.1X UMHS wireless network must be CoreImage or enrolled in AirWatch. MWireless will be available for WiFi, but with no access to UMHS resources.
