Staff Resources for Telecommuting

Why Working Remotely is Different

Working at home presents a unique challenge for information security because remote work environments don't usually have the same safeguards as working in the CSUSB environment. When CSUSB faculty and staff are on campus, they are working behind layers of preventive security controls. While not 100% foolproof, it is harder to make a security mistake while in the CSUSB environment. However, when computers leave the perimeter and faculty and staff work remote, new risks arise and additional protections are essential. Please adhere to procedures on the campus' Safeguarding Confidential Information Standard at all times.
