Reminder of Email and Computer Safety

Posted: 7/18/2019 11:40:00 AM

Dear Titans,

 

 Educational institutions are a continual target for a variety of malicious software such as viruses or “ransomware”.  Ransomware is software that encrypts files, making them inaccessible.  It also places a text file with instructions to pay a ransom in order to obtain access.

 

  Please review this guide, which discusses how to identify and mitigate these risks.

  We are not aware of any specific threat to our college, and ask you remain vigilant.  In the event you observe any such attempt, please report it to the IT Department immediately.  Do not take any further actions until we can assist you.

 

Thank you!
