Tulane faculty, staff, and students are vulnerable to information theft, data loss, and identity impersonation which can be used for profit and exploitation if steps are not taken to secure devices and accounts. Focusing on best security practices will help reduce these threats.
Best practices for cybersecurity and securing your information:
New security systems and technologies will continue to be implemented to stop advanced attacks, however focusing on the human element is necessary to foster a secure environment within Tulane University. Attackers realize that it is easier to gain credentials by having individuals give them passwords through phishing rather than breaking new advanced security systems. Please be aware that you are on the front lines of cybersecurity at Tulane, and your actions will help secure the Tulane Community.
