Cyber Security Tips @ NSU

Ever wonder why the computers lock when not used for a short time? 

Security is the quick answer. This is a cyber security best practice that has industry and State endorsement. Students that walk away from a computer risk lousing their work, but also control of their goNSU and email accounts. Faculty and staff have access to PII (Personally Identifiable Information), NSU accounts, and much more. The more you have access to, the more this practice protects you. To learn more read the State of Oklahoma Information Security: Policy, Information Security Policy, Procedures, Guidelines Procedures, Guidelines. Section 7.4 - Access Control addresses this issue.
