IT security - stay safe online
Be cybersecurity savvy - learn how to prevent attacks so that you won't lose important data.
We've put together some helpful information pages on how to report a data breach, secure your devices, manage your passwords, spot suspicious emails, be social media aware, protect your personal data and guidance for mobile device security. You can also keep up to date with the latest IT Security news on this page.
Please note: As an additional security measure to help protect your BU account, we have introduced Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to a number of BU systems, including Office 365, Zoom, and Brightspace. Read the MFA guidance and Frequently Asked Questions.
