Protective measures against cyber-security threats

Posted on 16 May 2017

Concerning the recent global cyber-security threats (Ransomware / WannaCry and similar attacks) aimed at disrupting digital services, please be advised of the following:

  • The ICT Service has made sure that all critical services and applications are secured.
  • Office PCs are still being secured: please be aware that you may receive a system message informing you of an imminent reboot. Should this be the case, do NOT postpone it! ICT staff may visit you as well asking you either to turn on or reboot your PC in order to facilitate the process.
  • You should back up your data and continue to do so at least on a daily basis. Be extra-cautious about clicking on links in e-mails and on webpages.

 Should you need any further assistance, please contact the EUI Helpdesk at +39 055-4685-600 (ext. 2600).
