Safe Use and Data Security
Business Technology Services (ITS) wants to ensure that FGCU data and personal information are protected from both internal and external threats. While ITS does everything we can to protect our network and data, the best defense against a security or data breach is an informed and involved community. “Get Secure Begins With You!”
Don't Get Hooked!
The number one cause of compromised accounts at FGCU is faculty, staff, or students opening and/or replying to a phishing email that asks you to "update" or "validate" your ID and password or account number!
Protect Your Data
You are responsible for protecting your data and personal information! It is suggested that all work data be stored on Network storage; when transmitting data that is restricted via email or other electronic means, it must be encrypted.
