From 2009-2010, Fermilab conducted the "Tune IT Up" campaign to improve computer security and promote best practices. Computer Security remains a top priority at Fermilab and is everyone's responsibility!
The Tune IT Up team has taken on its final task in improving laboratory cyber security: Ensuring secure e-mail use. The campaign will achieve this goal in two steps.
First, between today and Wednesday, May 5, those who use IMAP e-mail may need to alter the configuration of their e-mail clients in order to make certain communication is secure.
If you have a local account on your Windows computer, you or your system administrator might need to reset its password. Starting today, system administrators will begin receiving alerts about local accounts with passwords that need updating. If your system administrator contacts you, please work with him or her to either change the password or disable the account, if it is no longer needed.
