KSC Secure

From the IT Group:

Wireless network are by nature less secure than wired networks. An unsecure wireless connection is one you can access without a password. Public networks offered in places like cafes, airports, stores are often open. Although these provide free wireless internet access, using public Internet comes with dangers. This is because it is easier for someone to “sniff” the traffic over a wireless network because there is no physical barrier to where the traffic goes. It’s simply floating through the air. Using these unsecure, free connections make it easier for those “sniffing” the traffic to grab your personal information such as passwords, usernames, bank account numbers, social security numbers and more.

Best practice when using wireless Internet is to always connect to a secure connection. At Keene State, that connection is KSC Secure. Simply select the KSC Secure wireless network and log in…

It’s quick, simple and safe! If there is information you wouldn’t want to share with your neighbor, don’t share it on a public, unsecure wireless network.
