Every October we celebrate National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) by highlighting the importance of cybersecurity. 2020’s theme was #BeCyberSmart.
Three things you can do right now to help protect your CalNet identity:
#1: Add/Verify Your Recovery Email Address
A Recovery Email Address is a non-berkeley email that receives change notifications for your CalNet account and is required when you reset your passphrase. Learn more: mycalnet.berkeley.edu.
#2: Update your CalNet Passphrase
If it's been "a while" you should go to mycalnet.berkeley.edu and update your passphrase, there is even a NEW option to have a long passphrase (that doesn't require special characters!)
#3: Get a FREE LastPass Premium Account - on us!
UC Berkeley is excited to offer faculty, staff, and students a free LastPass Premium account. This tool manages all your passwords and syncs across all your devices.
