October is Cyber Security Awareness Month

Stay safe online. It is everyone's responsibility to protect your own, and the University's information.


  • Stop hackers from accessing your accounts. Set secure passwords.
  • Stop sharing too much information. Keep your personal information personal.
  • Stop. Trust your gut. If something doesn't feel right, stop what you are doing.
  • Stop and think about who can see the information you post online. Are you giving total strangers access to your information?
  • Stop any questionable online behavior. Only do and say things online that you would do in real life.


  • Think about the information you want to share before you share it.
  • Think how your online actions can affect your offline life.
  • Think before you act. Don't automatically click on links.
  • Think about why you are sharing information online. Is it going to be safe?
  • Think about why you are going to a site. Did you get it from someone you trust?
  • Think about who you are talking to online. Do you really know who they are?


  • Connect over secure networks.
  • Connect with people you know.
  • Connect with care and be on the lookout for potential threats.
  • Connect safely and show your friends and family how to behave online.
