IT Security Awareness

Good information security practices begin with you. Keeping your Miami password safe means keeping your email, Canvas, BannerWeb, and other resources safe, too. Here are a few simple rules to help:

  • Do not share your Miami password
  • Log out of all services/applications when using someone else’s computer
  • Never reply to email messages requesting personal information (Miami password, SSN, etc.)

Visit MiamiOH.edu/SecureIT for more useful cybersecurity tips and information about upcoming awareness events.

Duo Security

Duo two-factor authentication (TFA) is mandatory at Miami. TFA protects student accounts by adding a layer of security to the login process.

Job Opportunities

Interested in a job on campus? IT Services often has several paid positions that provide students the opportunity to work with computers and inform the direction of technology at Miami. Jobs include student assistants in various departments within IT Services. Visit MiamiOH.edu/IT for a list of available positions.

Emergency Text Messaging System

IT Services supports a variety of communication systems designed to ensure that you receive appropriate and timely information to keep you as safe as possible. For time-sensitive urgent alerts, the Miami Emergency Text Messaging System, powered by Omnilert, sends a text message and/or email alert to all registered users. This system is used to notify Miami students and employees of imminent danger or campus closure and not for general communication. All first-year students will be automatically registered for Omnilert by fall.

You may choose to opt out of the alerts at MiamiOH.edu/etms.

More information can be found at MiamiOH.edu/police.

Campus crime alerts and other high-level informational messages are sent to Miami email accounts and/or posted on myMiami. These notices are generally less time-critical.
