Cybersecurity is about resisting and preventing attacks and also being able to recover as quickly as possible after a cyber incident. “As cybercriminals become more cunning and sophisticated, we must become more vigilant about basic digital hygiene and protecting our data and devices – including smartphones and tablets. There are simple things everyone can do like keeping all software updated, turning on two-factor authentication, backing up data in the cloud or other removable media and making strong passwords,” said Michael Kaiser, executive director of the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA).

The Information Security program plays a vital role in making your experience as safe as possible. We are dedicated to help our students, faculty and staff protect themselves, not compromising the traditional rights and privileges of academia. However, it is important for everyone in the Institution to take appropriate measures to protect both individual and shared information and resources so that the entire institution can remain safe and secure and intellectually free.
