Protecting yourself and Penn’s data remain a top priority.

Dear Penn Nursing Students, Faculty and Staff,

While we teach, learn and work remotely, protecting yourself and Penn’s data remain a top priority. Security tools and resources for collaborating with sensitive data/information and protecting your computer are available on the Penn Nursing ITS website. Penn provides you with Symantec Endpoint Protection antivirus software at no cost to help secure your computer and the data stored on it.

Also, be sure to review the resources below from Penn Nursing ITS and ISC for teaching, learning and working remotely:
