Don't ever say, "It won't happen to me." Remember we are all at risk and the stakes are high – both for your personal and financial well-being and for the university's standing and reputation. If you need to leave your laptop, phone, or tablet for any length of time – lock it up so no one else can use it. If you keep protected data on a flash drive or external hard drive, make sure they're encrypted and locked up as well. For desktop computers, lock your screen or shut down the system when not in use.
