Cyber Security Best Practices
When you come to college, you’re taking on many responsibilities, making your own decisions, and becoming part of the campus community. There is an important role that you can play in our college's cyber security efforts that combines these elements of responsibility, decision-making, and community.
When you’re in college, your computer and mobile devices are primary tools in your educational and social life. Students use the Internet for homework, research, social networking, online shopping and other activities. The Internet is an amazing tool, but must be used safely and securely.
When you log on to the Mohawk network from home or onsite, what you do online could impact not only your computer, but other students and the network as well. By combining up-to-date security tools with good judgment, you and your college community are much less likely to encounter a security violation, loss of data, or system problems.

What is proctoring?
A proctored test/exam is an assessment that is supervised by an approved, neutral person (a proctor), who ensures the identity of the test taker and integrity of the test-taking environment.
Test or exams in online, virtual, or remote learning may require the use of an online proctoring service such as ProctorTrack or Examity to be completed.
The advantage of online proctoring is that students who are outside of Ontario, have time or mobility challenges, or simply prefer the convenience of staying home may complete exams online through online proctoring services. Online proctored exams can be taken 24 hours a day, 7 days a week unless otherwise directed by your instructor.
In a virtual/remote learning environment, online proctoring may be a requirement in certain courses and programs and could use one of two proctoring services, ProctorTrack or Examity.
