SharePoint Security Statement
If you need to share files securely with others and you don’t want to risk placing your files on a consumer file sharing site, a good alternative @ Purdue is to use use FileLocker to distribute / share your files.
FileLocker is a free Purdue system that allows large files (up to 1 GB) to be securely uploaded and distributed. Files are encrypted within the system and you can protect files with a download password that non-Purdue people can use to fetch the file.
For example, instead of sending out CD’s in the mail to distribute a large file, you could upload it to FileLocker to enable others to securely download it. If you need to share a group of files and folders, you could upload a ZIP file to FileLocker.
Here is a blurb from the FileLocker online help:
Learn how to share an uploaded file with anyone using a publicly available URL
1. After uploading a file, click on the file that you want to share and check the box next to “Public Share”.
2. Once the box is checked, you’ll be prompted to choose which email addresses should receive a link to the file you are sharing. You must also specify whether the share will expire after one use, or whether it can be downloaded repeatedly.
3. If the file may be downloaded repeatedly, you must specify a password that must be entered before the file can be downloaded. You will have to communicate this password to any intended recipients of the file through some other secure means (phone, encrypted email, etc).
4. Once you click share, a publicly accessible URL to download the file will be created, any email addresses you’ve entered will be sent an email notifying them that file is now available at the generated URL, and the URL will be displayed.
5. You may view the publicly accessible download URL and send it to additional people by email at any time after you share the file publicly by clicking on the “(view link)” text next to the Public Share checkbox.
You can find more information about FileLocker on these web pages:

If you need to make a multi-point telephone call (up to 6-way) from a Purdue phone, here’s how you can do it…
1. You can call the operator and the operator can assist you in making a multi-point phone call at no charge (up to 6 parties). First, dial zero to reach the operator and let them know you need to make a call with up to 6 numbers. Then you’ll need to give the operator the phone numbers that you want to call. If there are long distance numbers, you’ll also need to give the operator your MURS number. The operator will make the calls for you immediately and charge your MURS number for any phone numbers that are long distance. You can make use of this service at any time.
2. All Purdue phones can make six way calls, but it requires a feature activation from the phone office. There is a one-time $10.00 activation fee to enable the phone to make 6 way calls, and then there are no additional charges for this service other than normal long distance charges. For more info about 6-way calls, see:
“6 party conference – available on all sets, but must be an assigned software feature, contact 44719 to arrange to have this on your phone”
3. When there are only three end-points, conference calls can be made directly from any phone. Here is a link to the phone user guide that shows how…

Dear College of Education,
The Education IT team recently attended Purdue IT Security Incident Response training. Because some of you have access to restricted and/or sensitive Purdue data, we want to communicate our checklist for how we must respond to an IT Security Incident in your area. We’re sorry for such a long email that follows. The reality is that there is a lot going on behind the scenes in IT security and Purdue is legally bound by numerous federal, state and local laws to respond to IT security issues. We feel it is important to pass some information along and keep everyone in the loop. Please see the following PDF document:
