As Augusta University moves to a more remote work environment for instruction and operations in light of COVID-19, the Division of Information Technology asks that you remain mindful of the most common cybersecurity threats, which you can find on the IT security information and policies page

Additionally, the experts in IT are available to assist employees and students in connecting and working remotely should you have any trouble. You are encouraged to visit the university’s IT remote resources page for updates, answers to frequently asked questions and information about how to safely access network programs and work while offsite.

Just as keeping your body healthy and protected is important, so is protecting Augusta University data and devices. As always, please report suspicious cyberactivity immediately at 706-722-9237 or email
