Security Hints and Tips

Have you ever found a USB stick/thumb drive, or a CD on the ground or in a parking lot? While you may be tempted by curiosity to see what data is on it, or perhaps to identify the owner, do not insert any of these found objects into your computer.

This is a common tactic used by the bad guys to infiltrate your network, steal information and gain unauthorized access. Code can be executed simply by inserting these devices into your computer. By the time you see what files are on the device, the damage may have already been done.

If you find a thumb drive, please deliver it to the I.T. support department.

Remember to always refer to your company policies or consult your IT department on how to handle these situations.
