Protect UC’s data – and your privacy – with cybersecurity tips and tricks
In recognition of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, UC will be focussing on this critical issue in October. Here at UCOP, the ITS Information Security team is committed to raising awareness of the risks of cybercrime that we all face.
To keep your data and yourself secure both at home and in the workplace, follow these simple but essential tips:
- Be cautious before clicking on links and downloading attachments
- Be aware of who is asking for your personal information
- Keep a clean desk with all private information stored away
- Keep your laptop/mobile device with you at all times
- Enable auto screen lock with a password on your devices
- Report suspicious emails and/or behavior
