Latest Staff IT News
Multi-Factor Authentication is Coming Soon
The University is adding an extra layer of security for staff and students logging in to Office 365 accounts, by implementing a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solution. This is in response to the significant rise in reported account compromises due to phishing attacks against our institution. Multi-factor authentication is scheduled to be rolled out to all staff and students by the end of 2019.

Windows 10 is here!
Information Services is working to upgrade all University PCs to Windows 10 from Windows 7.
Windows 10 offers many benefits, including quicker start up times, smoother integration with Office 365, and shorter lead times to the most up to date software and applications. The upgrade to Windows 10 will also strengthen security, and is required to retain our Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation which we achieved in January 2019.
All staff are asked to request to have their PC re-imaged as soon as possible, but no later than 30 November 2019.
Find out more and submit a request on the Windows 10 Project page.

Mobile Device Registration
Information Services are currently working on a number of initiatives to improve cyber resilience at the University. One of these initiatives is to gather information about University-owned mobile devices and laptops, to ensure that we can account for them and the information they contain.
To assist with this we have launched a self-service website for recording device ownership, which can be found at: https://devices.napier.ac.uk/

As you’ll have seen with increasing regularity in the news, worldwide occurrences and consequences of information security incidents and cyber-attacks are growing.

Information Services are pleased to announce the launch of our new Information Security Awareness training. This course will help you understand the risks and what you can do to protect the University, and yourself, by minimising the likelihood and impact of information security incidents. Find out more...
