How can I become administrator of an FBK-owned laptop or other IT tool?

If you belong to the Research Department and intend to obtain the qualification for the autonomous management of an IT tool owned by FBK for exclusive scientific research purposes (ref. Chapter V of the Foundation's Privacy Regulation), you must be aware of the responsibilities that derive from it and follow the specific Guidelines carefully.

Depending on the tool you manage, you will have to complete the consequent mandatory training, choosing between the Secure PC Self-Management Course or the Secure Server Self-Management Course.

As you will read in the Guidelines, first of all you will have to enroll in the course on FBK Academy. To do so, log in to the my.fbk.eu portal with your FBK credentials and, in the "Applications" section, choose FBK Academy.

In order to optimize service response times and improve the quality and traceability of the service, SIT customer requests will be accepted via email only. Please submit your request to: help-it@fbk.eu . Given the difficulty in filtering incoming spam messages, it is not possible to guarantee the processing of requests from non-FBK email addresses. In order to guarantee processing transparency, confirmation messages will be sent to users when service requests are received, processed and closed.
