The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) prohibits the use of equipment manufactured by a limited set of manufacturers.

Please read this page for details on how to work with the Information Security Office (ISO) to discontinue the use of products from banned manufacturers. 


UCR encourages the use of electronic information resources to conduct the University's business. The UC Electronic Communications Policy (ECP) governs use of campus electronic resources including, but not limited to, computer labs, e-mail, iLearn, wireless network, and virtual private network (VPN). By using UCR campus electronic resources you are agreeing to abide by the ECP as well as the ECP Overview and Implementation at UCR.
