How to use it?

An IT security event may occur for a variety of reasons:

  • A hacker bypasses cyber security features to acquire sensitive information.
  • A device containing sensitive information is lost while on a business trip.
  • A file containing sensitive information is stolen from an office.

If you know or suspect that an Security Event has occurred, take these steps:

  1. If a device such as a computer has been compromised,
    1. Disconnect it from the network.
    2. Keep the device powered on.
    3. Try to preserve the current state of the device; don't change anything you don't have to.
  2. Tell your local IT Professional or Central IT immediately. Provide as much information as you can about the event (e.g., when you noticed it, what appears to be affected, what kind of data is on the device, etc.).
