IT Sustainability
Avoid printing out documents that easily can be read and filed electronically.

Security Tip
Trust your instincts
If an email or email attachment seems suspicious, don't open it even if your anti-virus software indicates the message is clean. Attackers are constantly releasing new viruses, and the anti-virus software might not have the signatures of the latest viruses, worms, Trojan horse, leeches and other forms of malware.

IT Tip
Back up your data.
There will always be a possibility that something could happen to destroy your data. By regularly backing up your data on a CD, a DVD, or network drive, you will reduce the stress and negative consequences that result from losing important information.
