Please note:

While the above measures reduce the risk of your computer being compromised they do not eliminate the risk.

We recommend that you:

  • Keep your firewall turned on.
  • Don't put an unknown USB drive into your computer.
  • Before you open an attachment or click a link in an email message, Facebook, Twitter, etc. confirm with the sender that the message is legitimate.
  • Don't click links or buttons in a pop-up window that seems suspicious.
  • Never give your password in response to a request in an email message. IT Services will never ask for this information via email.
