3. IT Services reminds users to practice safe computing

The campus community is asked to practice safe computing by never clicking on links in e-mails that look like spam and never answering an e-mail that asks for a password or any other type of confidential data. Failure to comply with these safe computing guidelines may result in identity theft, loss of other critical information and disruptions to the university's ability to send and receive e-mails from individuals outside of the university.

All e-mails from university sources will never ask for a password or personal information. Anyone who has received a suspicious e-mail should delete it and should not send any personal information.

Contact the IT Help Desk at 8-7799 if you receive a questionable e-mail and are unsure of what to do.
