Safe and Secure Computing
Safe computing is a shared responsibility between ITS and individual users of Lafayette's networked resources. ITS is committed to helping you keep the college's shared resources, as well as your personal information and data, secure.

It is also recommended that you set up an alternate email address through the utility which will help you recover your password should you forget it or if your account is compromised.
