IT Security Tip
If you print it, go get it! If your department utilizes a shared printer and you work with sensitive data, make sure to grab your print jobs right after hitting the print button. Don't leave important, sensitive or confidential material lying around the office. Always use the closest printer and go get it right away! Printers can be configured to protect a document to be printed using a passcode. To configure this, contact the TAC at (540) 831-7500.

IT Tip
Although you may have had good intentions when subscribing to a newsletter or other e-mail list, these are often distracting and often clutter your e-mail. Unsubscribe from any newsletter you haven't been reading.

Accessibility Tip
Use headings and subheadings to form an outline of the page. Headings help users with screen readers navigate the page and help non-visual users (including search engines) understand how the page is organized.
