Information Security Requirements for Connection of Home Windows PC to HKU Network

ITS has formulated a set of information security requirements for connection of home Windows PC to HKU network (including HKUVPN).

This set of requirements is applicable to staff members who are using their Windows-based home PCs or PCs on loan from departments to work from home.  Colleagues are advised to follow the stipulated requirements and operation protocol to ensure their PCs are securely protected against virus or malware attacks to avoid possible leakage of University data from these working machines and attacks on the HKU campus network.

Colleagues can refer to http://www.its.hku.hk/about/policies/home-pc-hku-network for the set of requirements in details.

The requirements for non-Windows platforms are being worked out and we shall keep colleagues informed once they are ready for reference.
