FAQs

My department has several old calculators that are going to be replaced with a newer model of calculator. My child needs a calculator for his math class this year. Is it okay for me to take my old calculator home and give it to my child to use for his school work?
No. It is never okay to take old Harris Health property for personal use. Taking Harris Health property for personal use constitutes theft.
I received an email from Harris Health’s Information Technology department asking me for my login user name and password so that the department can install updates to my workstation. Can I give the Information Technology department my login credentials?
No. Harris Health will never ask you for your login credentials or need your login credentials. If you receive an email asking for your user name and password, please immediately forward it to Harris Health’s Information Security department at infosec@harrishealth.org for investigation.
