Now that the new HSU password system is in place, ITS is recommending all employees check their security questions to make sure you still know the answers. If you haven’t entered any security questions, now’s the time to do so. Here’s how:
Identity Management at HSU describes the process used to create a unified account for every individual associated with the University to provide access to the resources they need to fulfil their role at the University. It encompasses all of the systems and processes that provide access to computers, networks, and other digital resources. When students are admitted or new employees are hired, the identitiy management system creates an account and provides access to the systems and services appropriate to that individual's relationship with the University.
The size and portability of smartphones and tablets is a big convenience factor - but it also means they can get lost or stolen much more easily. In addition to auto-locking your device to ensure your data can't be accessed, you can make use of your device's GPS capabilities to activate auto-tracking, which should make recovery a whole lot easier if you ever do lose it.
You can help to protect yourself against identity theft by reviewing your credit report at least once a year. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires that each of the three national consumer credit reporting companies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — provide you with a copy of your credit report on request once every 12 months at no charge.
There are many information security threats that we need to be aware of and protect against in order to ensure our sensitive information remains secure. False alarms can cause more problems than the real event, so educate yourself on what is - and, just as importantly, what isn't - a threat to computer security by following the links below:
Information security is an isue of personal responsibility as well as technology - in fact, humans are the single weakest element in any security equation. Never forget that the most important way to protect yourself and others against cybercrime is simple - keep your passwords secret. Never share your passwords with anyone. No one at HSU will ever ask for your password, not even the Technology Help Desk.
Below are links to some additional resources we've assembled to help you protect the confidentiality of your information:
