1 - Information Technology (IT) Security
IT security has become an integral part of the worldwide computing environment, and keeping computers,
networks, and data safe is of utmost importance. In keeping with this trend, CaTS has created a security website
that houses a wealth of information regarding IT security. Please visithttp://www.wright.edu/security/itwright/
to review this information. You can also view a short security video at the following website:
http://www.wright.edu/security/securityvideo/flashvideo.html.
Information to Remember
Downloading and installing security updates are crucial when defending against viruses and other
computer oriented attacks
Never allow another person to use your computer account
Close and lock your door whenever you leave your office
Use a password protected screensaver
Lock your workstation whenever you leave for any amount of time
2 - Malware
Malware is a term that encompasses both viruses and spyware. A computer virus is a program that is infectious
and can by highly complex. Viruses implant instructions in other programs or storage devices that can attack,
scramble, or erase computer data.
To check WSU’s current computing status go to the CaTS homepage (http://www.wright.edu/cats/) and look for
the “CaTS Bulletin” button on the right sidebar. Check this location for important computing news or alerts such
as the latest worm/virus outbreak information.
The following activities are among the most common ways of getting computer viruses. Minimizing the frequency
of these activities will reduce your risk of getting a computer virus:
Freely sharing computer programs and system disks
Downloading executable software from public-access bulletin boards
Opening email attachments from people you don't know
2
Spyware is software that watches your activities and collects personal data without your permission. Adware
displays pop-ups and other forms of unauthorized advertising. Because these programs run in the background
while you use your computer, they consume system resources and can slow down your PC significantly.
WSU Policy: Wright State University is concerned with the health of your computer and with maintaining
effective network resources. In the interest of your computer and the health of the University network, you are
REQUIRED to have up-to-date operating system patches as well as virus and spyware scanning software on your
system. In order to ensure uninterrupted network access, you must keep your operating system and all
virus/spyware tools updated.
Virus and Spyware scanning software for home use is available on the ConnectWright website, located at
https://www.wright.edu/cats/cw/.
Information to Remember
Characteristics of spyware: monitoring computer activity, collect personal information, sends
personal information back to the spyware creator
Macintosh computers are susceptible to this type of computer oriented attack; CaTS recommends
users download and install our free antivirus program for the Mac OS
Characteristics of a virus: erase data, scramble data, replicate itself
3 - Firewalls
A firewall is a system that is designed to prevent unauthorized access to or from a private network. Firewalls can
be implemented in both hardware and software formats. Here at Wright State University, CaTS maintains both
hardware and software perimeter firewalls for the entire campus community that control Internet traffic in and
out of our network. For individual computers, personal desktop firewalls, such as Windows Firewall, should be
installed to help prevent unauthorized access.
CaTS manages the security software on all university computers. For home use, the easiest and most convenient
firewall to use is the Windows Firewall, but other popular programs include Zone Alarm and Tiny Firewall, which
can be downloaded from the websitehttp://www.download.com.

Information to Remember
Personal firewalls protect your computer from unauthorized access
4 – Anti-spam Utility
Unsolicited commercial email, also known as spam, has become an increasing problem at WSU. To reduce the
amount of time involved with managing spam, CaTS offers a spam filtering service for faculty, staff, and
students. The service is currently available to all users with CaTS based email accounts (addresses ending in
@wright.edu). Instructions for using the utility can be found at:http://www.wright.edu/cats/antispam/. The screenshot below shows the new End User Digest, a way to see all the spam that the filter has blocked for your account.

6 - Logging into the Campus Network
Recently, Wright State University made a transition from Novell to Microsoft Active Directory for our file storage
and printing network infrastructure. The screenshot below shows what the login screen should look like when you
turn on your computer. To log in, type in your campus “w” username and password and click the blue arrow.
7 – VPN (Virtual Private Network) Software
The AnyConnect VPN from Cisco allows authorized users to securely connect to the WSU data network from the
campus wireless network or from off campus using various commercial Internet Service Providers (ISPs). Using
AnyConnect, wireless and remote users are connected to the university's internal network as if they were directly
connected to the campus network. This allows WSU wireless and remote users to access servers and other devices
restricted to WSU network users. In addition, a VPN connection allows the user to access all network files (Home
H:\ and shared drives K:\). To learn more about VPN software or to download it for your computer, please visit
the CaTS VPN site, located athttp://www.wright.edu/cats/vpn/.

8 – Accessing Your Network Files from Home
If you want to access your personal and departmental files from off-campus you must use the university’s VPN
connection. This connection allows you to securely connect to the WSU data network to access your files stored
on your network drives. In order to use the connection you will be required to install the university’s VPN
software on your computer and use it to connect to your files.
For instructions on how to download, install, and use the VPN client, please visit the following website:
http://www.wright.edu/cats/vpn/. You will need to click on the link for “AnyConnect VPN Registration” to start
the process.
After downloading and installing the software, re-visit the above listed website and click on the “Accessing Your
Files from Home” link under the “Existing AnyConnect VPN Users” section.

including pay information and grade entering. You can access WINGS Express by logging in to WINGS, then clicking
the WINGS Express icon in the top right corner.
12 - University ID (UID) and PIN
Your 9-digit University Identification Number (UID) is assigned to you when you apply as a student or become
affiliated with Wright State University. Your UID never changes and is never re-used. It replaces the use of your
Social Security Number as a permanent, unique ID number identifying you as a member of the university
community. The UID, along with your PIN, is used to access the WINGS Express system.
If you have forgotten your PIN, go tohttp://wingsexpress.wright.edu, enter your UID then click the “Forgot PIN?”

Official WSU Email Policy: There is an increasing reliance on electronic communication among students, faculty,
staff and administration at Wright State University. Because of this reliance and the acceptance of electronic
communication, email is considered the official means for communication. The University will send official
communications via email and expects that those communications will be received and read in a timely fashion.
Students are expected to check their official email address frequently to stay current with university
communications.

15 – File Encryption
Encryption is the process of transforming information from clear or plain text into a non-readable format so that
only the intended reader can understand or change the message content. Encryption ensures privacy. It is a way
to keep prying eyes from reading confidential information that is sent across the public internet.
Certain software applications have encryption methods embedded in them for sending and receiving secure
information and for the storage of information. There is also third party software available that can be used to
encrypt information.
