Being connected to the internet suggests that the internet is connected to you. Without concern and proper safeguards to protect the information you share, you are at a greater risk of cybercrime.
The university assumes its share of responsibility to protect sensitive information but you must do the same. The vast majority of data and identify thefts are not the result of enterprise breaches but a direct consequence of individuals who are complacent about sharing sensitive information or unaware of the risks.
Please take a moment to review this video to obtain a better understanding of how you can help protect yourself from cybercrime.
If you would like further information regarding what you can do to protect yourself against cybercrime, please contact the University Technical Assistance Center (extension 8822) to schedule an appointment with one of the IT staff.
