When: Monday, October 12th
Description: ITCS has been working with the Office of Internal Audit to upgrade their EnCase Cybersecurity application. EnCase is a suite of digital forensics products designed for forensic, cyber security, and e-discovery (file preservation) processes. The newest version of this application requires that software be installed on all university-owned workstations, laptops, and servers. On Monday, October 12, ITCS will be installing this software automatically through KBOX (our tool used to automatically load software onto workstations remotely) on all university-owned computers that do not already have EnCase installed*. This installation should be seamless and you should not experience any disruptions. If you have any questions about the software or installation or need assistance, please contact the IT Help Desk at 328.9866 or http://help.ecu.edu .
The University uses EnCase in compliance with applicable law and policies, including the University policies referenced below. Each policy document identifies an office or person to which related policy questions may be addressed.
