The IT Security team will help guide you through the following areas:

  • Best practices for securing your mobile device
  • What to do if you lose a mobile device
  • Personal devices and the work environment - things to consider
  • Methods for safely handling your mobile device(s)
  • Securely connecting to university resources with your mobile device
  • How to select a smart device that is security smart 

Our goal is to help provide you with an improved and safer mobile computing experience.
