Remote Technology Checklist
Technology Checklist for Remote, Telecommute, and Work-At-Home Employees
ATSU recognizes the value and benefits of employees being able to work from off-campus locations. Use the following checklist to keep both ATSU data, and your equipment secure when you work remotely.
- Read and become familiar with ATSU’s work from home and telecommuting policies.
Employees who request and are approved to work from their home on an extended or permanent basis
Telecommuting allows employees to work at home, or during business travel, as part of their regular workweek.
- Set up Appropriate Equipment
- Dedicate a computer/laptop as your ATSU work device.
While shared computers may be used for occasional, ad-hoc work like checking email, regular remote work requires a computing device specifically dedicated to the employee’s work.
- Ensure all computing devices used for ATSU work are password-protected, preferably with multi-factor authentication.
- Install virus/malware protection software
- Turn off the save password feature on browsers. Instead, we recommend using a secure password utility like LastPass
- Activate auto locking screen saver functionality with at most a 20-minute window
- Get a good headset with microphone for communications
- Have a quality video Camera for teleconferencing
- Get the appropriate applications and services (The ITS service desk is available to consult regarding requirements and access.)
- Cisco Jabber softphone or other reliable phone service. (The ITS service desk is available to consult regarding softphone requirements and access.)
- Google chat for quick access to co-workers
- Zoom for virtual meetings
- Cisco Anyconnect VPN services or Citrix Remote access
- Use appropriate digital storage
- Get Connected to the internet with secure, password-protected, broadband access
- Secure your workspace
- Locking drawers for paperwork
