Tips for Online Security While Traveling


Welcome to your GVSU Cyber Safety website where we will keep you updated on best practices for cyber security as it relates to GVSU business and your personal accounts. Our goal is to discuss cyber safety related to the individual and bring awareness to ways you can better protect your GVSU and personal accounts.

Here are a few simple, but key ways to help prevent a cyber attack:

  • Think B4U Click!  - Avoid suspicious email links and attachments
  • Ensure your anti-virus is up to date - GVSU computers automatically update using Symantec.  Protect your personal devices!
  • Never enter personal or account information from an email link - GVSU will never request this via an email
  • Set strong passwords using passphrases
  • Report suspicious emails by forwarding them to helpdesk@gvsu.edu (if possible, forward as an attachment)
