Will Using the VPN or HTTPS Protected Web Sites Guarantee My Security?

No. Remember that both HTTPS and VPN connections only secure your connection; they do not prevent attack of the remote server where your information is stored. If you do not know that the remote site is trustworthy, do not enter any confidential information there, and under no circumstances should you use the same password you use on Ball State University systems. Only make credit card purchases from reputable vendors. Do not enter any personal or confidential information on web sites you do not trust.
