Repairs are conveniently completed during an appointment at the service window, located on the first floor of the CIT building at 115 Waterman Street.
Web conferencing, which uses the WebEx technology, allows multiple individuals or groups to share information on-line. Through this service one can schedule, manage and attend on-line meetings. Features include document and application sharing (screen sharing), chat, polling and video sharing.
Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE) provides advanced data and file encryption for desktops, laptops, and removable storage devices. ISG recommends that faculty and staff who use laptops containing Brown Restricted Information (especially frequent travelers) consider using SEE, which should only be installed by a qualified support person.
Identity Finder software is available to all active staff and faculty to detect and secure sensitive data on their computers, with the goal to help prevent identity theft and aid in keeping Brown compliant with federal and state laws.
CIS has made an arrangement with InCommon for issuing digital certificates (cert). A cert is an electronic file containing personal information about its owner as well as the owner's public key, used to establish a web site owner's credentials when transactions on the Internet must be secured.
The computing knowledgebase contains help articles, FAQs, and problem resolutions for common software products. Eventually, Brown-specific solutions will be added.
