Security

Computer security is everyone's job — there are steps we all can take to protect sensitive information and networks, both at home and at Wayne State University.

First of all, take advantage of your association with Wayne State and download a free copy of Symantec Endpoint Protection from the Software Clearinghouse. Simply login and click Free Software. Symantec is an antivirus program that automatically works to keep your computer safe.

Then, check out Wayne State Tech Solutions for more information. Search for "Safe Computing Practices" as well as tips on how you can "Secure Your Computer".

Clicking with care means:

  • never click on a link in an email from an unknown person

  • never login to a service on a linked page, always type the address yourself

  • double-check the address on any website that asks for a password


You are the only person who should know your password. If you share your password, you are putting your own information at risk. Wayne State employees will never ask for your password.
