Issue: Removal of Local Administrator Rights
Status: Scheduled Events
Date/Time: Monday, 3 September 2018 8:00AM

In 2016, as part of an audit by the Office of the Auditor General, a risk was highlighted to Curtin around the exposure of wide spread use of local administrator rights on Curtin devices. These rights allow staff, for example, to install software on their computers, while also allowing unwanted and unexpected malicious activity to run on their device. Curtin’s Senior Executive have agreed that we need to address the risk. The first phase of this program will be to remove local administrator rights from all staff using Curtin Windows devices.
