Do I need a Computer Health Checkup?

Everyone can benefit from having their computer's health checked on.  We will perform various inspections to ensure that your laptop is safe, optimized and running the way it is supposed to.

Examples of upcoming security enhancements being deployed to the campus are:

· OneDrive Backup, which will provide a cloud backup of files stored locally on the hard drive of your computers to protect against ransomware and other loss

· Bit-Locker and FileVault2 disk encryption which will help ensure that your data remains secure even if your laptop is lost or stolen
