Members of the CISO monitor reports of new vulnerabilities reported from within and outside of the campus. Visit this page often for security updates, advisories, and security news. Content from external links is not managed by BYU.
Several Mac users on campus have contacted our office in concern due to a recurring message from their Outlook for Desktop app. Because Outlook is undergoing a server upgrade, Mac users will be prompted to allow the new server (called autodiscover-s.outlook.com) to configure their email settings. The pop-up prompt will look like the one pictured above. A few users have selected “Allow”, but haven’t checked the box for “Always use my response for this server”. If this box is left unchecked, the same prompt will return regularly, which can be inconvenient and confusing.
To help individuals and organizations find resources they can use and share, NCSA has launched the COVID-19 Security Resource Library. This library features free and updated information on current scams, cyber threats, remote working, disaster relief, and more. NCSA will work diligently to update this page regularly as resources become available.
