IT Security Training

The Office of Information Technology works to keep your information secure, but there are steps users can take to protect themselves as well.

Password Security

  • Choose a strong password that cannot be easily guessed
  • Never give out your password--the Cambridge College IT Department will never ask you for your password, and no one else at the college should, either
  • Use dynamic passwords - Example:
  1. Think of a phrase you can remember : “I Love College"
  2. Make it into a password without spaces: ILoveCollege
  3. Add dynamic attributes like numbers and symbols: 1L0ve(ollege
  • Passwords need to be changed every 90 days, but if you suspect your account has been compromised, immediately change your password

Data Security at Work

  • Lock your screen when you leave your desk, and don't leave items with personal information out in plain sight
  • Be careful of what sites you visit and what you download--when in doubt, ask the HelpDesk if a website is legitimate before entering any personal information
  • Be wary of unsolicited communcations from outside businesses, especially if they ask for personal information on an unfamiliar website
  • For more information, see the email security page

 

The IT department will always encourage you to place an eHelpdesk ticket.  Click on the online eHelpdesk and use your Network credentials to log in, and try to be as specific as possible.
