Is your information secure?

Awareness is the first step – and National Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort between government and organizations like USC to ensure everyone has the resources and knowledge to keep information secure at school, work, home and on the go – and it’s part of the university’s TrojanSecure program rolling out during this school year.

When it comes to cybersecurity, knowledge is power. Any information that you or USC would not want disclosed should be protected, including but not limited to:

  • Email containing private information
  • Passphrases
  • Personal data (address, social security number, passport number, driver’s license number)
  • Financial data (credit/debit card number, bank account information)
  • University data (employee/student information, research, health records, clinical records, payroll information, payment information, proprietary information)
