Whenever you must step away from your computer, make sure you log out of applications such as CAB.

Windows Computers
All PC computers come with the ability the lock the screen with a User ID and Password. Just hit the “Control/Alt/Delete” buttons and a window will come up saying your screen is locked. Anyone trying to access your computer will have to enter the correct User ID and password.

Mac Computers
All Mac computers can set up their screen saver to prompt you for a password to “wake” the computer up. You can set this is the System Preferences/Security Pane. Check the box for “Require password to wake this computer from sleep or screen saver”.

Please review the documents below regarding IT's new process to identify the technology roles/contacts. The new process will require each school/department to enter their contacts into SAP. Technology Contacts must be updated in SAP every time there are staff changes throughout the school year.  IT will run SAP reports on a regular basis to update administrative access where necessary.  Individual forms will no longer be used to add/remove staff.
