  • Cyber Security Awareness (1)

    Cyber security awareness refers to how much end users know about the cyber security threats their networks face and the risks they introduce. End users are considered the weakest link and the primary vulnerability within a network. The Computer Centre maintains firewalls and security measures including 24x7 surveillance to protect our networks, domains, and computers from external threats and reduce vulnerabilities. Being that end users are a major vulnerability, technical means to improve security are not enough, Computer Centre would like to share the below documents to gain Cyber Security Knowledge and stay alert from Cyber Threats.


    1. Common Cyber Threats
    2. National Cyber Crime Reference Handbook
    3. Secure Remote Desktop Access
    4. SSL Pinning (a quick walk through)

    For example, for a student who has email id rollnumber@iith.ac.in then his LDAP username would be rollnumber.
    Similarly, Faculty/Staff having email id username@xxx.iith.ac.in then username would be username.

    If you forgot your LDAP account password, please visit: LDAP account password reset portal https://reset.iith.ac.in/ldap (internal site)
