Ensuring Technical Security

Computer security is the process of preventing unauthorized use of your computer or theft of confidential data as well as sensitive personal information which includes but is not limited to such data as social security number, email address, home address or employee ID.

Preventative measures help block unauthorized users (also known as "intruders") from accessing any part of your computer system and prevent personal information from being inadvertently altered or destroyed.
Computer security is necessary for all CSULB users, whether you are computing on campus, remotely from a University-owned system or connecting to the network from your own personal computer.
