Aalto University can not deny the use of social media, but confidential or work-related information, pictures and videos may not be published without the permission of your organization.

Criminals and competing organizations can take advantage of all published information to damage the university or to its own advantage.

The second episode of video trainings deals with using a home computer for work. A home computer is often used for different purposes than work computer, which may cause information security risks, and lead to confidential information falling into the wrong hands. A home computer might, for instance, be contaminated and Aalto has no way of knowing this.

Check the playful video to get to know, for instance, can I let my family member use my work computer, can I use my home computer for work, or can I take my own laptop to work and connect it to Aalto’s network.
