Windows Security and the Physics Network Policy statement for the department

Policy statement, May 2004

The need to keep systems up to date with patches and anti-virus measures has become increasingly obvious. Recent experience has also shown that time is of the essence when dealing with new patches and failure to apply them leaves the whole network exposed to unacceptable risks.

Covering the departmental rules and policies for computing and what would be considered as computer misuse.

Computer Misuse

All use of the computing and network facilities in the Department of Physics, as well as all other computing and network facilities throughout the University of Oxford and associated Colleges, is subject to certain rules. These rules concern what is considered unacceptable behaviour and misuse, as well as what may infringe licence terms or may be otherwise illegal. Note that all use is permitted for bona fide purposes only, and is subject to proper authorisation.
