Important message on computer security due to recent outbreaks


Please remember security is a shared responsibility.

The following are the critical steps that we count on everyone to take to protect their data and reduce vulnerabilities for everyone.

  1. Save or copy all your important data to OISEDrive (also known as HomeSpace) regularly. Any files stored on HomeSpace/OISEDrive for more than 24 hours can be restored from backups in case they are affected.
  2. Exercise caution when opening email attachments. Do not open any messages with offers that are too good to be true. Beware of messages from the CRA about your income tax refund for example, or banks asking for your credentials, or to have you open an attachment.
  3. Regularly apply security updates to your home and personally owned computers.

If you have any questions, please contact the OISE EC Client Care Portal
Help Desk: Rm. 3-320 (3rd fl. computer labs)
