    On Thursday, April 4th, we're making a change to Brown email to better protect you against spoofed emails (fraudulent emails that pretend to be from someone you know at Brown).

    If Google suspects that a message is attempting to spoof a Brown address, you’ll see a warning at the top of the email.

    Why Data Privacy Day?

    Privacy is important year-round, but this event is observed internationally each year on January 28th to promote awareness about the many ways personal information is collected, stored, used, and shared.

    As of today, Brown has turned on Two-Step Verification for access to Office 365, and a few other services that use Active Directory Federated Services (ADFS) as their authentication method.  

    Use of Two-Step Verification provides better security for all, as it ensures that people accessing the service have another way of proving their identity.

  • Thu. 1/17 @ 2pm

    Lynda has thousands of technical, business, and design courses.

    Here are the courses we featured in Today@Brown during 2018. We're continuing to feature courses in 2019 on most Tuesdays in Today@Brown.
