Students: is your laptop/phone/tablet secure?

The unending cycle of progressive IT security, ensuring that the UCSF enterprise is as secure as possible, can cause confusion when it comes to your own laptop, phone or tablet.

The Library Tech Commons Help Desk can provide one-on-one hands-on tech support for enrolled UCSF students for their own devices. Let us help you reduce your anxiety or confusion about IT security compliance. Users often comment they wished they had sought tech support earlier.
