Protecting the Griffith community
We provide numerous levels of IT security to protect the Griffith community, our assets and our information from external threats. Initiatives include the installation of antivirus software on PC s and servers and firewalls and intrusion protection systems on the network. These security measures have been implemented in response to the increase in number and type of security related vulnerabilities such as:
- computer viruses
- hacking tools
- malicious content
Some of these exploits are so sophisticated that they conceal their identity while stealing user information. In many instances this occurs when a user accesses certain internet sites accidentally, unknowingly or deliberately.
Confirm a website is safe
If you have received a pop-up alert for a website that you know is safe, you can log web content filter request and we will investigate the site, confirm it is safe and then remove it from the safeguard filtering system.
