Your security on BAvarsity Web-sites

At BAvarsity, we’re committed to helping you study online with us in a safe and secure environment.

On these pages, you can learn more about some of the most common internet security threats, what you can do to protect yourself, and what we do to ensure your details remain secure.

 

Common security threats

Phishing:

Phishing emails are an increasingly common method used to try and gain access to personal details in order to carry out fraud or identity theft.

Typically, a phishing email will claim to have been sent by a reputable organisation and ask that you respond to the email with your username and/or password or that you enter your sign in details over a ‘secure’ connection.

Whilst phishing emails can seem very professional, there are usually a number of clues to alert you to the fraudulent nature of the emails. When reading an email claiming to be sent from reed.co.uk, you should always keep the following questions in mind:

  • Are you being asked to provide your password? Bavarsity will never ask you to provide your password in response to an email or phone call.
  • Are there spelling and grammar mistakes in the email? Phishing emails often originate from outside your country and spelling and grammar mistakes are common.
  • Are you being asked to download something? If you don’t recognise a file, don’t download it. All BAvarsity account details are stored online, so we’ll never ask you to download anything to use the service.
  • Are you being threatened with losing access to your account? Phishing emails sometimes make it seem like you’ll lose access to your account unless you download something or provide your sign in details. BAvarsity will never ask you to do anything like this in order to keep your account open.

If you’re suspicious of any email you receive from BAvarsity, please contact us with the subject line of the email, and the email address it was sent from.

Spoofing:

Spoofing occurs when a criminal creates an exact copy of a website in order to make a fraudulent company look legitimate. A spoofed website will usually look exactly the same as the website of a legitimate company, but with a slightly different web address (e.g., ‘.biz’ instead of ‘.com’ or ‘.org’). If you’re suspicious of any website you’re directed to as a result of your dealings with BAvarsity, please and we’ll investigate.

Identity theft

Identity theft occurs when an individual steals personal details from someone else, and uses the information to fraudulently impersonate that individual. Victims of ID theft often find that their details are used to open bank accounts and obtain credit in their name.

Identity theft can only take place where a criminal has been able to gain access to enough personal details to create false documents in another person’s name. In order to avoid becoming a victim of identity theft:

  • Never give out sensitive personal information such as your bank details, date of birth, National Insurance number or a copy of your passport in relation to an email
  • Look out for spelling and grammar mistakes in emails you receive
  • Never give out your sign in details in response to an email

If you suspect that you’ve been a victim of identity theft, you should contact the police as soon as possible.

 

What you can do to protect yourself

Account security

Online security risks can be minimized simply by ensuring that your password is always kept secure. We recommend you follow the password security advice below:

  • Always use a password which is personal and does not contain your name, email address or the word ‘password’
  • Ensure your password contains both letters and numbers
  • Never give your password out to anyone – we will never ask you for your password
  • Change your password at least once every three months
  • Take a moment to memorize your password so you don’t need to write it down
  • Try and use a different password for each different website you use
  •  

What we’re doing to protect you

We’ve partnered with several industry leaders to ensure you receive the most secure levels of service possible whilst using our sites.

 

Encryption

To protect your personal information, BAvarsity uses industry standards such as TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption to encrypt and secure your data.

 

Virus protection

BAvarsity automatically scans, detects, and quarantines new viruses, ensuring that all documents uploaded to or downloaded from BAvarsity, are safe and virus-free.

 

Data

BAvarsity servers are securely hosted and ongoing vulnerability assessments and security monitoring are conducted of BAvarsity servers.
