Technology and cyber safety

VCU is committed to protecting information resources that are critical to its academic and research mission. This particularly includes the preservation of an environment that encourages collaboration through the responsible use of information technology resources such as email and the Internet.

Phishing, vishing and smishing are some of the favorite tools for cyber criminals. These methods are used to access your sensitive information in the hopes of stealing your identity, personal information or financial assets. To protect yourself, make sure you verify the legitimacy of the email or notification prior to responding to or clicking on any included links or attachments in an email or social media message.
