Ever wonder what makes a good password? How you can spot phishing before you’re caught by it? Or maybe you’re just curious about what’s new in the world of IT security and privacy? For all of this and much more, visit the Safe Computing website.

Safe Computing is an authoritative website filled with IT security and privacy guidance maintained by ITS Information Assurance (IA).

You can also learn to secure your devices and protect your privacy, or find out what personal information U-M collects and how it is used.

For those looking to stay up-to-date on technology news, Safe Computing has a curated list of IT security and privacy articles that is refreshed daily. There is even a collection of social media posts featuring U-M IT community pets, who are just as concerned with protecting you and U-M as we in IA are.
