Security Requirements for Third Parties on the IPFW Network

Third parties who are given access to the IPFW network or access to IPFW owned network resources are not only bound by the Ethical Guidelines for IPFW Information Technology Users but are also responsible for taking reasonable precautions to ensure their systems will not compromise the security of any resources on the IPFW network. This includes but is not limited to having:

  • antivirus which is updated automatically and enforces full scans at least weekly
  • operating system set to apply critical and security patches automatically
  • software/plugins kept up to date with security patches

Third party computers that pose a serious risk to the campus environment will be denied access to the network, and will not be allowed back on until the risk has been mitigated.
