Users should not use the network resources for activities that are not related to the school (e.g. commercial and private activities). Downloading by using Peer-to-Peer (P2P) software (such as e-Mule, BT, WebThunder and etc) through campus network is prohibited unless it is explicitly approved by the school. The user whose daily average bandwidth utilization exceeds the benchmark will be subject to penalty defined by the school. The benchmark is adjusted depending on the internet bandwidth and the current benchmark is 400 MB/Day/Client. At first, the client will be blocked to access to any network resources once it exceeds the benchmark. And then one or more of actions listed in Enforcement Section could be taken, depending on the seriousness of the offence.

Network objects (data, program, information) not particularly locked or protected by the system do not imply that they can be altered, deleted or manipulated. This is same as the common understanding that you do not have the right to take away belongings of others although they are not being locked.


4. Security Awareness

Globally speaking, the number of computer and network security incidents has been increasing remarkably in the past few years. Such a worldwide phenomenon is having various impacts on our campus IT infrastructure. User’s security awareness and participation play an important role in maintaining a stable and secure computing environment.

Faculty, Staff and students should become knowledgeable about relevant security requirements and guidelines, and protect all the resources under their control such as access passwords, computers, data and information they acquired.

Computer should have the most recently available and appropriate software security patches, anti-virus software and firewall protection, commensurate with the identified level of acceptable risk.
