Privacy Tips

Be #PrivacyAware.

Share With Care

  • What you post can last a lifetime: Before posting online think about how it might be perceived now and in the future and who might see it.
  • Own your online presence: Set the privacy and security settings on web services and devices to your comfort level for information sharing. It’s ok to limit how and with whom you share information.
  • Be aware of what’s being shared: Be aware that when you share a post, picture or video online, you may also be revealing information about others. Be thoughtful when and how you share information about others.
  • Post only about others as you have them post about you: The golden rule applies online as well.

Personal Information Is Like Money. Value It. Protect It.

  • Think before you act: Be wary of communications that implore you to act immediately, offer something that sounds too good to be true or ask for personal information.
  • Get two steps ahead: Switch on two-step verification or multi-factor authentication wherever offered to prevent unauthorized access.

Login Page Redesign

Over Christmas Break on December 27th, we will be updating the login page of applications that use our single sign-on authentication method called Central Authentication Service (CAS).  CAS unifies the login process of many SJU applications (such as The Nest, Blackboard Learn, Zimbra). Instead of having to manually sign into each application separately, only one login, regardless of the application, is needed per browser session.

This new design will make navigation more visually appealing and user friendly.  The straightforward look will provide a better user experience, especially as we begin to welcome our Fall 2016 admitted students during #redenvelope season.

Here is a sneak peak of what you can expect to see:

All of your favorite links and services are still available.  You will just need to select the Show Portal Resources button in order to view them.

For security purposes, we would like to remind you to log out of all SJU services when you are finished working in them.  All you will need to do is click “Log Out” or “Sign Out” in the top right corner of the application and close out of your browser.

If you have any questions about the redesign, please contact the Technology Service Center.

Banner Downtime over Christmas Break

Banner INB and SSB will be unavailable the following times over Christmas Break for system upgrades:

Friday, December 25th from 8am until 10am
Sunday, January 3rd from 7am until 12pm

INB is short for “Internet Native Banner” and refers to the back-end of Banner that is most widely used by administrative staff to manage their data. Offices such as Financial Affairs, Advancement, and Enrollment Management, just to name a few, have many staff members accessing Banner INB constantly to manage institutional data.

The majority of Faculty and Staff use another form of Banner known as “Self-Service Banner”, or SSB, which is accessible through the Administrative Services section of The Nest.

When you enter students’ final grades, perform a budget query, submit or approve leave reports, or check your pay stub, you are using SSB.

If you have any questions, please contact the TSC at x2920 or by email at

Happy Data Privacy Day!

Happy Data Privacy Day! This is a day for respecting #privacy, safeguarding #data & enabling trust #DPD14

Data Privacy Day is an international effort to empower and educate people to protect their privacy and control their digital footprint.  Data Privacy Day began in the United States and Canada in January 2008 as an extension of the Data Protection Day celebration in Europe. Data Protection Day commemorates the January 28, 1981, signing of Convention 108, the first legally binding international treaty dealing with privacy and data protection. Data Privacy Day is now a celebration for everyone, observed annually on January 28.  Data flows freely in today’s online world. Everyone – from home computer users to multinational corporations – needs to be aware of the personal data others have entrusted to them and remain vigilant and proactive about protecting it. Being a good online citizen means practicing conscientious data stewardship. Data Privacy Day is an effort to empower and educate people to protect their privacy, control their digital footprint, and make the protection of privacy and data a great priority in their lives.  Data Privacy Day is led by the National Cyber Security Alliance, a nonprofit, public-private partnership dedicated cybersecurity education and awareness, and advised by a distinguished advisory committee of privacy professionals.

To begin taking a proactive approach to your online privacy and security, follow these steps from STOP. THINK. CONNECT., the national cyber-security awareness campaign. 


  • Secure your devices. Keep your devices from prying eyes. Set passcodes or pass phrases (long passwords) to be sure only you can access your smartphone, tablet or PC.
  • Secure your accounts. Passwords are no longer the only protection from would-be hackers. Enable two-factor authentication to add another layer of security.
  • Make passwords long, strong and unique. Passwords should be different for each account, have as many characters as allowed and include numbers, symbols and letters, capital and lowercase.
  • Think before you app. Before downloading a mobile app, understand what information (your location, access to social networks, etc.) the app accesses to function.
  • Back it up. Store digital copies of your valuable work, music, photos and other information on an external hard drive or online cloud.

New Zimbra is here!

Welcome to the new, improved Zmail!  We are pleased to announce that we were able to complete the upgrade at 3pm on August 11th, 2013.

Thank you for your patience while we upgraded our Zmail server, but we assure you, it was worth the wait!  As you begin your day, take some time to explore the new features of Zmail, including:

•    Double the amount of quota space that you had in your prior Zmail.  <insert applause here!>

•    Read receipt: You can flag a message that you write to have a return receipt message sent back to you when the recipient opens your message.

•    Restore previously deleted email messages: You have the ability to recover a deleted message from the Trash folder for 30 days after you’ve deleted it.

•    Send Email Later:  You can delay delivery of an email message and specify the date and time to deliver the message from the Send dropdown menu and selecting Send later. The message is saved in the drafts folder until it is sent.

•    Mail Fetch: You can now retrieve older mail by simply scrolling through your mailbox, rather than going to next page.

•    Spam Control: Additional spam control now allows you to block specific email addresses from within the web client.

•    Horizontal three-panel view option: This feature, similar to Outlook, allows you to view your mailboxes, sorted e-mail, and reading pane in one window.

•    Calendar Options: With your Zimbra Calendar, you now have the option to view two weeks in a list view.

•    Copy Meetings: In your Zimbra 7 Calendar, you can now copy existing meetings.

We have TSC staff ready to assist you with any questions you may have about the new Zmail system and its features.  Please call us at x2920 and we will promptly answer.  If you are an Outlook user, we will be sending a followup email shortly with a small change that you may have to make in your Outlook settings.
