Security is an important concern for everyone. Here are some tips for keeping your computing environment secure:
- Don't trust a Web form when the website address does not match the name of the institution it claims to represent.
- Be cautious about file sharing, and don't share access to your computer with strangers.
- If you are off campus, check for updates to your Symantec AntiVirus software regularly.
- Back up your computer data regularly.
- Choose secure passwords that no one can guess, and never write your password down in a vulnerable place. If you suspect your password has been used by someone else, change it immediately using Password Manager.
