CyberSafety Tips
While CPSB has security
in place, you need to be
vigilant when receiving
emails and going online
just as you would with
regular mail or door-todoor sales in real
life. Consider the tips on
the following slides.
Be CyberSafe!
 Use proper netiquette and be a good
digital citizen.
 Remember the AUP!
Never Give Out
Personal Information
Make sure to NEVER give out your
name, email, home address, phone
number, account numbers, Social
Security number, CPSB Student ID,
picture or any other personal information
about you, your family, or your friends.
Think B4 U Post
Internet privacy is an illusion. Don’t post
what you don’t want the entire world to
see! Communicate respectfully online
(chatrooms, blogs, networking sites,
instant messaging (IM), etc.) Once it is
online, it will always be there
somewhere, even if you delete it.
Think B4 U Click
 Be cautious with email
attachments and links.
 Never open an email
attachment from someone you
don't know. For that matter, be
very cautious when opening
an email attachment from
people you DO know, unless
you know exactly what the
attachment contains.
Be Careful of Downloads
 Do not download and install software
without permission.
 Once permitted, only download from
known or trusted websites.
 Read privacy statements.
Use the Red “X” to
Close Pop-ups
 Always use the red “X”
in the corner of a pop-up
 Never click “yes,”
“accept,” or even
“cancel,” because it
could be a trick that
installs software on your
