Chip Security



eServices are fully aware of the recent identification of potential security threats to hardware micro-chips such like the ones we use in our technology in Schools. Manufacturers are working hard to rectify the problem and more information can be found here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-42562303

As this potentially affects all Microsoft and Apple devices there will be some considerable updating happening on these devices over the coming weeks and months to overcome the issues. Please be conscious about ensuring you allow these updates to apply to your devices and restart them when asked to. The device may be forced to restart if you do not comply to this.

The eServices team will be patching all Server infrastructure equipment in Schools also and working hard to ensure full security where possible in timely fashion when patches and updates are released. If anyone has any further questions or needs advice in more detail please contact the eServices team via the Support Desk or call 01902 555555.

eServices prides itself on making sure all our systems are up to date to mitigate any risk, this news exposes everyone and not just our service and Schools we support. We advise anyone also to ensure they update their home systems and devices where updates are available to protect themselves.

We thank you for your co-operation at this time.
