Quick guide to system security Accessing ISD services from departmentally managed machines


Equipment for desktop windows systems can be ordered, installed and supported by ISD on your behalf. These can be set up to run Staff WTS or, for Corporate Service Support divisional staff, ADS. You can also access WTS and ADS from departmental machines that are not set up by ISD staff.

Many departments set up and run their own equipment.  Each UCL computer must be assigned an 'owner' who is responsible for keeping the system up-to-date with security fixes and virus protection software. Frequently specific members of staff are assigned this responsibility across a department or unit. You should make sure you know who is responsible for any machines that you use.

Please see our purchasing pages if you need to buy a computer, peripherals or software for departmental use.
