Tip #2 for National Cyber Security Awareness Month

We are now well into National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Remember, you can always check the Stay Safe Online NCSAM website for more information and tips!


Cyber security is all about keeping your information safe, including your financial and personal information. In addition to keeping it secure, its important to keep it backed up!

Ever lost your phone or tablet? Ever accidently washed a flash drive, that just happened to have an important copy of a paper?

A backup is a second copy of all your important files – for example, your family photos, home videos, documents and emails.
Instead of storing it all in one place (like your computer), you keep another copy of everything somewhere safe.

All students have free storage space on our Adams State file server, which is backed up by Computing Services every night. In addition to being accessible in the student labs, you can access your files anywhere via a web browser.

Check out our how-to on how to use it:


You can also store multiple copies of your files on Google Drive. All ASU students get 30 GB on their student Google Drive free.

For more information on backups, check out World Backup Day’s website:
