Further details

CIS will be carrying out routine network maintenance on Thursday 7 April between 6pm and 9pm. During this work there will be a brief interruption to all CIS services; this includes network services such as Telephony, Wireless and Wired network as well as Internet access.

As the disruption will be intermittent, all services should continue to be considered at risk between 6pm and 9pm as we carry out the maintenance.

You should save your work before the maintenance commences and ensure you are logged out of network and cloud applications to avoid any loss of data.

Should you encounter issues connecting to Access VPN after this maintenance, please reboot your computer and retry your connection.
