Q. • How do I protect my computer account?

Answer

The University has University-wide protection, covering the whole network. You do not need to run any security or antivirus software while logged in to a University PC on site. You do need to take some responsibility for your account by:

  • Never giving anyone the login details of your account.
  • Always save your work and log off your PC if leaving it unattended (even just for a few minutes).   
  • Follow the ICT guidelines regarding internet browsing behaviour.
  • Never open an email from someone you do not know or that has no subject line. 
  • Never click on a link or open an attachment in a suspicious email. 
  • Be aware of phishing emails which will ask you to provide personal details.  If you are unsure about an email, please contact Student IT Support.  
  • Always have a backup copy of your work and documents.
