Microsoft introduced Windows 10 some years ago. In line with this development they have ceased support for Windows 7. This means they stopped offering any technical support for issues, software updates or security fixes.
Most of the College devices have been upgraded to Windows 10 already, but there are still approximately 2500 staff computers operating on Windows 7. For these remaining devices, being out of support presents a risk, therefore ICT had previously purchased extended support for Windows 7. This extended support ends in January 2023.
It is vital that we get all remaining devices onto Windows 10 by January 2023 or remove them from the network to protect our IP from cyber threats.
These web pages cover the benefits of Windows 10, the upgrade process provided by ICT and what to do should you require support.
