Computer Privacy and Security

The things you do online make an impact offline. Create a strong and positive reputation for yourself by following these simple tips:

  • Share with care: Think before posting about yourself and others online. Consider what a post reveals, who might see it and how it could be perceived now and in the future.
  • Be aware of what's being shared: set privacy and security settings. It's ok to limit how and with whom you share information. Apply the golden rule online: post only about others as you have them post about you.

Spear Phishing


Spear phishing is highly specialized attacks against a specific target or small group of targets to collect information or gain access to systems.

Avoid being a victim:

  • Don’t reveal personal or financial information in an email, and do not respond to email solicitations for this information. This includes following links sent in email.
  • Before sending sensitive information over the Internet, check the security of the website.
  • Pay attention to the website's URL. Malicious websites may look identical to a legitimate site, but the URL may use a variation in spelling or a different domain (e.g., .com versus .net).
  • If you are unsure whether an email request is legitimate, try to verify it by contacting the company directly.
  • Keep a clean machine. Having the latest operating system, software, web browsers, anti-virus protection and apps are the best defenses against viruses, malware, and other online threats.

University of Scranton staff will NEVER call or email you to request your username and password.
