Security Standards

Butler's Computer Use Master Policy allows Butler students to connect their own devices to the campus network. In order to maintain optimal network operations, IT requires that certain security standards be met.

Antivirus Protection

Every student should have functioning and up-to-date antivirus software installed on each of their computers. Once installed, it is the student's responsibility to keep the program up-to-date and periodically scan their computer for viruses. Computers found to be infected by a virus will be removed from the network due to the security risk(s) they pose.
