Cyber Emergency

If UB experiences a campus-wide cyber emergency, it will be reported the same way as other emergencies. Many personal cyber incidents happen every day, however, and can be problematic for you.

Your Computer Isn't Behaving As You Expect

What's the Problem?

1. Find out if the problem has already been reported.

2. If the problem has not been reported, contact the UBIT Help Center.
