Staying safe online during the holidays

20 July 2020

Visit the staff website to see what you can do to protect your online data and privacy at your holiday address. Do you have access to a public Wi-Fi network on your smartphone, tablet and laptop? Then you can make use of eduVPN.

Install software updates

Under normal circumstances, the updates are placed on a (semi-)managed laptop via the university network. When working from home, you must upgrade the software manually at least every month. An instruction is available in the helpdesk portal.

Be on the look-out for phishing mails

Colleagues are sent phishing emails every day asking them to update account information. Unexpected emails ask you to act quickly. Visit the staff website on how to recognize a phishing email and what to do if you have given away personal or login details.
