While we work online from home during these uncertain times, you should follow these tips in order to have a safe online experience.
Familiarize yourself with Zoom security features and use them. More information can be found on Securing Your Zoom Meetings.
Connect to the VPN (vpn.iup.edu), and Remote Desktop into your IUP computer. Data and network access stays within IUP and keeps IUP’s network security safety nets in place.
Do not store work data and information on home computers or personal devices. All data on the IUP network drives (e.g., H: and O: drives) is secure and backed up.
Make sure your computer’s operating system and applications are up to date. Software updates provide security fixes to protect you and your device from cyber threats.

Don’t use personal accounts for IUP business. Remember that IUP email is the official means of communications.
Create unique and strong passwords for all your accounts and devices.
Do not store printed paper documents with sensitive information at home.
