The final week of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month does not mean we should stop caring about cybersecurity. Rather, it is all about making information security a priority every day. For our campus, this means building a culture of cybersecurity as a shared responsibility. Each of us has an important role to play. It only takes a single phishing email or one infected machine to compromise our accounts and the entire campus network. As we increase our digital footprints and connected lives, we must help each other reinforce good security practices and reduce risky security behavior that may jeopardize our personal and academic freedom.
Make cybersecurity a priority no matter where you are, at work and at home. Below is a list of security reminders on how we can strengthen our shared commitment to improve the security posture of our Beach Community.
Use University approved methods to send, share, and store sensitive information.
