Security Tip
Never send or receive sensitive data (social security numbers, credit cards, etc.) over email. Should someone send you sensitive data via email, delete the email and contact the sender. Inform the sender that it is a violation of university policy to send or receive sensitive data over email.

IT Tip
A computer or its hard disk drive can fail at any time and without warning. When it does, a user's personal documents, letters, pictures, music, video, etc. can be lost. In many situations the user's information cannot be recovered or be recovered at great expense. Users should have backups of all important data - documents, letters, pictures, music, video, etc. - so it can be replaced should a computer or hard drive fail.

IT Sustainability Tip
When leaving the office for more than two hours, shut down the computer, monitor and printer or set them to standby mode.
