Why to use this service

Computer security is only as strong as its weakest link. All too often the person sitting at a computer or holding a smartphone is that weakest link. The result is a compromised device or account, lost resources or data, and reputational damage to the University. Many instances of data loss at the University haven’t been a result of hacking, but a case of information being sent somewhere unintentionally. Auto completion in the to: field of an email message might be convenient, but it also can (and has) lead to disaster. This doesn’t have to be the case. By educating campus about computer security — what is required of them, but also best practices — we better protect campus resources. We also arm our customers to protect themselves in their personal lives and with their own data.
