Third Party Users
This generally relates to friends or family being given access to University owned mobile devices. Simply allowing friends or family to use a device opens up the risk that they may do something that compromises the security of the device. It may not be deliberate, but it doesn't lessen the impact of any malware that could be installed. Never allow friends or family to use a University device
While someone else is using a University device allocated to you, you have no idea what’s being installed, or downloaded. You could be held responsible. A laptop that has been infected by a friend or family member with malicious software that then goes onto create problems, such as infect other computers, or wipe shared drives is YOUR responsibility!
A more subtle risk with this is allowing other people at work to use your account details. Logging someone in with your credentials leaves you wideopen for anything that’s downloaded, deleted, or installed under your name. It could be that someone deletes an entire shared drive, and YOU will be held responsible.
