Use secure networks, such as your cellular carrier network, EKU_SECURE, or a wire connection.
Use a wired connection when practical. Wired connections to the internet from on-campus computers, including lab computers, use the university's secure network. These are always recommended on-campus for Blackboard (e.g., taking tests and quizzes) and confidential university work (e.g., financial information).
Because BitLocker uses custom passwords for encrypting external storage devices (thumb drives or USB hard drives), you might need to recover a forgotten password some day. You are welcome to call the IT Service Desk; however, this article describes how you can recover a BitLocker password through the self-service web site, bitlocker.eku.edu.
