Good news - updating our security patches is about to get easier!

In response to requests from users and to improve computer security patching levels across the Trust, a number of small changes will be made to the pc security updating process from 1 June. 

From the 1 June:

  • Your computer will tell you when it is being patched. Please do not reboot or turn off your computer while this is taking place. 


  • Your computer will tell you when the patching is complete. Please reboot your computer when the patching is complete.

  • Your computer should be connected to the Trust network every 30 days.  If your device is not connected within 45 days it will lock you out.  Your computer will warn you in advance of lock out.
