Use the Network Safely

SAFE NETWORK AND INTERNET USAGE

Use virus protection software & keep it updated.

All computers connected to the campus network must be using up-to-date anti-virus software. McAfee 8 is the current PC antivirus solution on campus and is installed on all UWW provided computers.

Students: McAfee is available from ResNet for students living in the Residence halls. Please visit the ResNet website for more information.

Use an anti-spyware program.

  1. Users should not install software that can compromise their machines.
  2. Use one of the campus-wide solutions to remove spyware include Spybot and Spykiller.

INTERNET SECURITY PRACTICES

  1. Don’t click on links sent to you through e-mail. Instead open your browser and type in the address of the sites that you wish to visit.
  2. Do not send confidential data over unsecured links. Unsecured links start with http and secure links start with https.
  3. Clear your web browser cache and delete your “cookies” after each use of your web browser.
