Welcome to Secure Computing at MIT.

Cyber criminals are constantly looking for ways to breach computers, even those here at MIT. Every time you log on to the internet, you open up your computer, data, and identity to malware and other threats — unless you take the right precautions. 

Even doing a few things, such as changing your passwords or downloading the latest patches, can make a big difference. Need help? The IS&T Service Desk is available online, by phone, or in-person.
