Screen lock policy deploys Aug. 5

Due to the State of Kansas policy requirements, a screen lock policy will be rolling out to all university-owned computers on Friday, Aug. 5. With the exception of master classrooms and labs, all Wichita State University-owned computers will automatically lock after 15 minutes of inactivity.

This policy will provide data security and prevent unwanted users from accessing the data on the computer. The state of Kansas has made a Screen Lock Policy a requirement among institutions and agencies. Instituting this policy helps to ensure we meet compliance obligations undertaken by many areas of the university.
