Security :: Identity Management

Identity Management at HSU describes the process used to create a unified account for every individual associated with the University to provide access to the resources they need to fulfil their role at the University. It encompasses all of the systems and processes that provide access to computers, networks, and other digital resources. When students are admitted or new employees are hired, the identitiy management system creates an account and provides access to the systems and services appropriate to that individual's relationship with the University.   

Security :: Remote Tracking for your Mobile Device

The size and portability of smartphones and tablets is a big convenience factor - but it also means they can get lost or stolen much more easily. In addition to auto-locking your device to ensure your data can't be accessed, you can make use of your device's GPS capabilities to activate auto-tracking, which should make recovery a whole lot easier if you ever do lose it.

Security :: Annual Credit Report Monitoring

You can help to protect yourself against identity theft by reviewing your credit report at least once a year. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) requires that each of the three national consumer credit reporting companies — Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion — provide you with a copy of your credit report on request once every 12 months at no charge.
