Reporting a Data Breach
Everyone is responsible for protecting data they manage or access. If you suspect information may have been accessed by an unauthorized person, report it right away. Doing so helps protect potential victims while ensuring the university is compliant with applicable laws and policies. Once OIT has been notified of a suspected breach, it will be investigated and addressed appropriately.
Use a Password Manager to Store Strong Passwords
LastPass generates and stores unique passwords for every site and automatically logs you into them. The service is optional and offered at no cost to UNLV students, alumni, and employees.
