Information Technology is here to help you succeed at FIT. Whether near or far, no

Cyberattacks, identity theft, and online scams are all over the news lately. A school might not seem like a likely target, but colleges, along with other institutions, are increasingly in the cross-hairs of global cybercriminals. College databases hold a lot of personal information about students and employees that can be valuable to hackers. Many attacks against institutions like FIT succeed because of something a community member did (clicking on something they shouldn’t) or didn’t do (use a strong password). That’s why we have started a campaign to make everyone aware of what they can do to stay cybersafe. We provide tips, training, and online resources, and members of our security team will be at campus events to promote awareness and answer questions. And remember the same practices that protect you at FIT protect you at home.
