Information Protections and Security - RU Secure?

Are you aware of your computing/digital responsibilities?  You are your own best defense against identity theft, compromise and malware. The following are some suggestions for basic IT security.

  • Follow password rules. Never share your password. Choose different passwords for different sites.
  • Confidential information should not be sent via email. Email is not secure.
  • Install antivirus/antispyware software, and have it updated automatically.
  • Use only secure Wi-Fi when transmitting confidential data (credit card numbers, banking, etc.).
  • Don’t be a phishing scam victim.  Rutgers will never ask you for your password or other confidential information in email.
  • Protect your social networking with privacy settings.
