IT Security Reminder: Log off after using computers on campus

With the beginning of the Fall 2016 semester upon us, McGill IT Services would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the importance of logging off from your Windows session on all campus computers, including podium PCs used during teaching sessions.

Leaving a computer with your personal Windows session open can allow subsequent users to access your McGill personal network storage (e.g. your P: or R: drive) and to open and send email messages from your McGill email account using the Outlook application on that computer.
