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.
