A message from the Chief Information Security Officer

Hello and welcome to Stony Brook University!

Our goal is to help you achieve a safe rewarding experience while contributing to your success as a student.  While having fun, making new friends, and of course, furthering your education is on the top of your priority list, it’s also vital you remember to protect yourself and your data along the way!

In order to achieve your fullest potential,  we must work together as a team to ensure that you avoid needless obstacles so you can focus on what is most important: your student success.

With that said, my team and I have put together the Stony Brook University Student Survival Guide for Safe Computing.  In this resource, you will find cut-to-the-chase crucial information, links, and phone numbers to help keep you and your data safe.

We urge you to read it over, keep it in a safe place, and give it some thought.  Remember, you are the reason we are all here, so together let’s make it yet another great year.

Thank you,

Matthew Nappi
Chief Information Security Officer
