Is the network secure?

BAC Wi-Fi access is as secure as any open public access network. It is always a good idea to make sure your computer has a local firewall turned on and that your Anti Virus and system software is up-to-date. It is also a good idea to make sure you are on an SSL-encrypted web page prior to sending or receiving confidential data. Belmont Abbey college assumes no risk for any viruses, identity theft, or any other malicious or unwanted activities which can occur to individuals accessing a public network.

Note: Belmont Abbey College reserves the right to monitor Wi-Fi activity, filter content and otherwise control or prohibit wireless access usage.

The software provided for students at a free or discounted rate can be found here: support.bac.edu/software-discounts/
