Information Technology helps protect the privacy, confidentiality and integrity of Salisbury University resources and data through a combination of technology and awareness.
National Cyber Security Awareness Month
SU’s Information Technology Department recognizes and actively participates in this national endeavor to raise information security awareness. Each week during the month of October, we will share valuable security tips to help you stay secure in cyberspace, covering a variety of topics including phishing and social engineering, mobile device security, social media safety, and malware prevention.
Information security is our shared responsibility, so please join us in our efforts to create a more secure campus community!
Emails that are received from a sender outside of Salisbury University will be marked with the below heading.
Please use caution when responding to these emails. Emails that claim to be from the IT Help Desk or an IT Administrator that asks you to provide your SU account username or password should be questioned as to its validity even if it appears to be coming from an SU account. If you have a question about the authenticity of an email, or if an email appears to be suspicious, you should call the Help Desk to confirm prior to clicking links, replying or submitting any information.
Because of the increased delivery of malware, viruses and ransomware through compressed (zip) files and executable (exe) installer files, IT removes those file types from emails sent to @salisbury.edu email addresses from external email addresses. If you need to receive a zip or exe file from a trusted sender and are unable to receive the file as an attachment, see our Receiving Zip and Executable Files by Email guide for alternative options to receive those files.
