Information security awareness is an effort to raise awareness of computer-related security issues. This section is dedicated to providing you with important information about current threats, as well as steps you can take to protect yourself and your devices. By securing your devices, you also help us to secure the Loyola University Chicago network.

 Please take a look at our Phinn Video Series.  Phinn is here to remind us "Don't Take the Bait" when you see a suspicious email, something appears too good to be true (emails for personal assistants), or an MFA push notification that that you didn't expect.  In addition to phishing education, Phinn shows us ways to stay safe online both at home and in the office.
