October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Oct. 16, 2012

Baylor University Information Technology Services works diligently to protect university information resources and our users from ever present threats on the Internet to identity theft and other crimes. However, there are some things that only end users can control. To add another barrier of protection against compromise of your personal information:

  • Always use secure passwords
  • Think before clicking links in emails or texts
  • Keep your operating system and application software up to date
  • Keep a back up copy of your critical files
  • Delete any messages that ask you to email or post personal information (social security number, account numbers, passwords) online

To find out more about being cyber secure, come and see us at one of the following events, or visit us online at www.baylor.edu/bearaware.
