· Recognize suspicious computer behavior and report it immediately.
· Look for the following indicators that your computer may be compromised:
· Your computer is running slower than usual or you receive alerts of high resource use (high disk or memory usage).
· Unknown software starts to install automatically.
· Pop-up windows appear.
· Your computer crashes, locks up, reboots or becomes unresponsive.
If you notice any of the above indicators and you believe your computer may be compromised, report the incident immediately to your supervisor and to your local IT Department by phone or email. Please provide as much detail as possible, such as the date and time the incident occurred. Be prepared to provide a step-by-step explanation of what happened and what actions you took after noticing the suspicious activity. IT will verify the incident and act to safeguard the Court's PCs and network.
