  1. NetID and Password. Your UNMC NetID and password provides access to many campus systems such as email, eServ (Employee Self Service), the campus network, wireless network and Blackboard for online compliance courses. Do not share your IDs and passwords with anyone.
  2. Information Security.  Information security is everyone’s responsibility.
    1. Always demonstrate professional conduct.
    2. Only access information required to do your job…“legitimate business need”
    3. Password protect and encrypt mobile devices.
    4. Report information security incidents to the ITS Helpdesk at 9-7700 (402-559-7700 from off-campus).
  3. Email at Work and On the Go. Email is available from your desktop, from any Internet browser and from your mobile device.
  4. Off-Campus Access and Electronic Prescriptions of Controlled Substances (EPCS).  Off campus access to sensitive information such as patient data and the campus network requires an extra level of security.  EPCS also requires an extra level of security in order to meet DEA requirements and requires you to enter your NetID, password AND use what is called a hard token.  Your departmental administrator will obtain your hard token for you. Your UNMC email access only does not require extra security.
  5. Office 365.   Everyone has access to UNMC’s Microsoft Office 365 which includes OneDrive, Yammer, and other Office 365 functions. This is the only secured, HIPAA compliant cloud storage solution for your UNMC documents.  Box and Drop Box are not secured.
  6. Software for Work and Home. UNMC uses the Microsoft Office suite at work. Faculty, staff and students can use MS Office for FREE on up to 5 laptops and 5 mobile.  You can use the software as long as you are a UNMC faculty, staff or student.
