The cybersafety landscape at our university

As many as 1 million account password-guessing attempts are logged by Ryerson each week. Each month, the university prevents 1 million connections from email systems known to send harmful messages. We reject close to 3 million monthly email delivery attempts from suspicious servers using invalid delivery methods to reach Ryerson users. On a daily basis, up to 200 emails with harmful attachments are blocked from reaching Ryerson users.
