Security is everyone’s responsibility. When we take small actions to protect personal privacy and security, we strengthen the University’s overall security and resiliency against cyber threats. Thanks for following along this month! Take additional steps to protect yourself and the University:
- Learn 5 ways to protect your privacy on a new smart device. Did you know that your computer’s camera and microphone can be accessed without your knowledge?
- Check if your account has been compromised in a data breach. Over 8.5 billion accounts have already been compromised, are they some of yours?
- Follow some general tips and advice for staying safe online. Easy steps like multi-factor authentication, good password etiquette, and updating your computer are highly effective at defending against common attacks.
The security website also offers a number of resources to learn more about protecting yourself online, and resources if you think you’ve been targeted by a cyber threat.
