The Internet is part of everyone’s life, every day. We use the Internet at work, home, for enjoyment, and to connect with those close to us. However, being constantly connected brings increased risk of theft, fraud, and abuse.

No country, industry, community, or individual is immune to cyber risks. As individuals, cybersecurity risks can threaten our finances, identity, and privacy. Universities, which are characterized by their openness based on academic freedom, are among the most widely attacked targets.

Our way of life depends on critical infrastructure and the digital technology that operates it. The University takes steps to ensure the security of our infrastructure and systems, but cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, and everyone can take a few simple steps to make the Internet more secure!
