Network Security Policy

In an effort to protect our campus network and student/staff machines from the threat of viruses and spyware, Information Technology has taken the following security measures.

In order to access the wireless/wired network your PC/laptop/device must be registered. 
On our wireless registration page (http://registration.farmingdale.edu/registration), students can register by choosing option #1 and faculty/staff choose option #2.

Laptops and PCs running a Microsoft OS must have the latest Windows Service Pack and Symantec Endpoint Protection
