Online safety

Keep yourself and your data safe online.


In your daily online activities, be careful about when and under what circumstances you give out your personal records and information. The Student IT resource on safe computing will guide you on safeguarding your system, assets and information against online threats and scams.


It's important that you confirm the validity of an email source before you disclose any sensitive information to the sender. The Student IT resource on email security and suspicious emails includes guidelines on how to identify suspicious emails and the best course of action if you receive such mail.
