Florida Poly, alongside the other institutions in the State University System (SUS), is taking immediate steps to comply with the Florida Board of Governors’ emergency amendment to Regulation 3.0075 – Security of Data and Related Information Technology Resources, which was adopted March 29.
The amended regulation requires universities to remove technologies identified as severe security threats in the SUS Prohibited Technologies List from any University-owned device and to block network traffic associated with the technologies. These include TikTok, Wechat, VKontakte (VK), Kaspersky, and QQ (Tencent QQ).
Effective immediately, Florida Poly employees and students are to discontinue the use of these applications and websites on University devices and networks. If an employee has one of these applications installed on a University-owned device and requires help removing it, please reach out to the ITS Helpdesk at email@example.com or 863-874-8888.
The following actions will also be taken.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. If you have any questions, please contact the ITS Helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 863-874-8888.
