We take IT security very seriously at Olivet and encourage you to take time to review the information below.
Olivet sponsored IT security training by:
- Go to https://training.knowbe4.com/login
- Enter your @olivet.edu email address
- Login using your Olivet email address and password (if needed).
- If someone asks you for information, question why they are asking and if you really know who is asking.
- Never provide information to inquiries that come to you. Always go to an organization's official site or address.
- Always pause and evaluate before providing information.
- Never give passwords to anyone. No organization should ever ask you for your password.
- Use a separate password for each account you use (both personal and work).
- Use two-factor authentication when available.
- Use strong passwords.
- Keep your device (computer, phone,… ) software/operating system up-to-date.
- Secure devices to prevent access if lost or in case of unauthorized access attempts.
- Make sure you are securely backing-up important data stored on your device.
- Make sure to lock your device when unattended.
- Make sure nobody connects any devices to your computer.
- Check all of your computer's ports for unknown devices.
My account has been compromised:
- Change both your ONU password and password reset challenge questions by visiting changemypassword.olivet.edu
- Change all your passwords, both work and personal, immediately by going to the source organization(s). You should do this from a known secure device since your device may be compromised and may pass the new passwords on to the attacker.
- Then scan your device for malware/spyware and other malicious software or reset your device to a new state and rebuild it. Contact your device manufacture or a computer professional for assistance if needed. Also see security articles below.
