UNSW IT | Cyber Security Updates

A list of changes occurring to UNSW platforms

UNSW IT is continuing to improve security measures to our collaboration platforms to better protect our information resources and to help reduce unintentional sharing of sensitive information and account compromises. 

UNSW IT will be strengthening our Microsoft 365 collaboration sites such as Teams, OneDrive and SharePoint. The changes will include:

  • 'Private' cloud storage services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Egnyte and Box will no longer be able to connect with UNSW Teams. Instead, you'll need to ensure your files and folders are stored in UNSW SharePoint or UNSW OneDrive. 
  • External guests invited to Teams meetings will need to wait in the lobby until the organiser lets them in. Only UNSW (internal) users can join Teams meetings before the organiser. 

We encourage you to learn more about these security control setting changes on MyIT

The changes will be staggered over several weeks, from Tuesday 13 February until the end of March.
