As information and media managers of the University community, the University Computing Services must ensure the reliability and security of information systems and ensure that good use is made of them.

The objectives of this policy are:

  • Enforce the law.
  • Ensure compliance to use Internet access to the national network of R+D (RedIRIS).
  • Ensure availability, performance, security and privacy of the information systems.
  • Ensure the security and privacy of users.
  • Protect the reputation and good name of the UMH.

To do this, there is a set of guidelines or measures to follow:

  • It is not allowed to use the University computer systems for any act that violates the applicable law or policy of use of the national network of R+D (RedIRIS).
