“Many students and staff have their own computing resources, but there`s also dependence on public machines, such as those found in libraries, and ensuring that these machines are safe can be tricky”, says Steven Zink, vice president of information technology and dean of University Libraries at the University of Nevada, Reno. “I`ve seen people walk away from a terminal with all their personal information still on the screen, even banking data,” says Zink. “Sometimes they just get distracted and don`t even think about it.” The university uses Deep Freeze, a security program from Faronics that resets a computer to its original settings on a regular basis. This erases any stored cookies, input data, and even malware and viruses that may have crept into the computer while it was idle.
