Personal Devices & Cloud Services

The use of personal devices and cloud services in higher education is transforming the way we conduct our research, teaching and administration. To address this changing landscape, a campus-wide team has analyzed our current strategy for managing computing and recommends the following to ensure UW-Madison remains competitive and innovative:

  • Embrace the diversity of device and service ownership
  • Manage high risks by enabling and guiding device and cloud services adoption
  • Improve the security boundaries of systems and networks that are managed by campus and departments
  • Provide secure remote access for personally-owned or personally-managed devices that need access to the data within those secure boundaries
