On March 23, 2018, UBC Cybersecurity will be implementing network security upgrades at UBC’s Okanagan campus for all wired connections and the ubcsecure wireless network.
This upgrade will add a layer of protection to prevent unintentional visits to known high-risk websites through the internet. After the upgrade, if you’re on a UBC network and accidentally click on a link to a high-risk website, your browser will redirect you to a block page.
For example, if you receive a phishing email with a link to a fraudulent website and accidentally click on it, you will see the block page.
Please note: This process is automatic and the university is not acting as a censor. This service will not track individual user website activity. For more information and an FAQ about this new security upgrade, visit: privacymatters.ubc.ca/OK-network-upgrades
