Upcoming Changes to Software Updates on PCs

Keeping computers up-to-date, including operating systems and third party software installed is extremely important. Regularly patching and updating software strengthens the security posture of the College computing environment thus reducing the risk of system breach and data compromise.  To achieve this goal, it is required that all machines be powered on and accessible via the network so that these updates can be installed.

Starting January 9th, ITS will implement a new process for all desktop PC workstations which will automatically power up college computers nightly at 10:30 pm. This will allow critical system patches and software updates to be installed overnight. Please note that laptops will not be affected.

If you have any questions regarding this announcement, please send your inquiries to the Customer Care Department at ITS.CustomerCare@sjcd.edu.
