Tips for Safeguarding Information

  1. Verify prior written consent before discussing content from a student’s education records with a 3rd party, such as a family member.
  2. Never share your passwords or long another person into a University system using your credentials.
  3. Double check that your email recipient list is correct before pressing send.
  4. Lock your electronic devices when not in use and secure cabinets with paper records.
  5. If you suspect that a system may have been compromised, immediately contact security@uconn.edu.
  6. If you are unsure if you may access or use student records for a specific purpose, contact privacy@uconn.edu for guidance.
