Users must follow to the USB policy for Government Furnished Equipment (GFE). Printers, scanners and other home USB devices are not authorized for use with GFE. The approved equipment list is available at: https://esuit.uscg.mil/ESUIT-Home/Entry/ProductList2.aspx. A wired mouse, keyboard and CAC reader without the ability to store information are authorized for all GFE. Users are reminded to abstain from printing Coast Guard documents on personal or commercial printers. Information Security is everyone's responsibility. Not printing from CGPortal and Web Outlook will help ensure privacy and operational security.
