Nothing personal

Be careful where you charge your devices, the CyberSafe at USPS team warns.

Do you plug your personal devices into Postal Service equipment or computer networks?

If so, you’re creating a significant information security risk.

USPS is reminding employees that they should never connect their personal devices — including phones, tablets and electronic readers — to postal equipment or networks.

Here are two more tips to follow:

  • Don’t charge any device by using USPS equipment. If you need to charge a device, use an outlet.
  • Don’t log into the Postal Service wireless network with your personal device.

The Postal Service is distributing a poster and stand-up talk to remind employees of these rules.

The CyberSafe at USPS Blue site has additional tips, along with guidelines on reporting information security incidents.
