New security policy to protect System Administration employees’ computing devices

To increase data security and protect System Administration employees from unauthorized use of their Windows computing devices, UIS is implementing a new screen saver policy as part of the monthly Windows update process on Tuesday, March 15.

What can you expect? Once updated, computing devices will automatically lock after 15 minutes of inactivity. Customized screensavers will be disabled and replaced by a secure screen saver. You will need to log back into your computing device once the secure screen saver engages.

Thank you for your support as we implement computer security policies to protect the university’s data. Please contact the UIS Service Desk with questions about this change. We can be reached at or
