Windows 10 upgrade

To remain compliant with IT security standards at Concordia University, faculty and staff members currently working on Concordia issued PC devices will be required to upgrade to Windows 10 to ensure continued support from Microsoft. Microsoft has announced that with the release of Windows 10, Windows 7 systems will begin to no longer be supported with security updates and bug/feature patches.

Recent versions of Windows have important improved security, performance, and usability options that older versions do not.  Your older operating system may get security updates, but does not improve with age.  Only newer versions get all the benefits of improved management, reliability, and security technology
