What is Cybersecurity?

Cybersecurity is the practice of protecting ourselves and our families online, as well as securing our personal information. Common sense, accountability, and responsibility are the cornerstones of cybersecurity.

Cybersecurity Matters to You and Yours!

We are all digital citizens living, working, and communicating in a cyber environment. In a world where so many of our activities and interactions can take place online and in cyberspace, it is critical that we recognize our individual responsibility to be aware of cybersecurity issues and educate ourselves on cybersecurity threats and defenses. We are all responsible for practicing and promoting cybersecurity.

Basic Cybersecurity Checklist

Basic steps you can take to start protecting yourself from cyber threats:

  • Create and use strong, unique passwords
  • Install anti-malware/anti-virus software on your computers and devices
  • Update operating systems, anti-malware/anti-virus software, application software, and mobile apps
  • Use screen locks & passcodes on your devices
  • Back-up your content
  • Think before you click!

A Message from the CIO

IT Bulletin | Published: March 2016
Volume 13, Number 6

As we find ourselves in spring cleaning mode preparing our lives for summer, please remember to spring clean your data and information resources. In this issue we provide tips on de-cluttering your device, and provide information about how dust can negatively impact computing equipment. As part of this process, remember to do your electronic housekeeping, such as archiving old email and deleting unneeded email. For those that have computing equipment no longer needed in your area/department, we encourage you to use Raider PC Mart (www.raiderpcmart.ttu.edu), as another area/department might be able to use the equipment for their needs, thus reducing the overall cost to Texas Tech. Happy spring cleaning! Go Tech!

Sam Segran
Associate Vice President for IT and Chief Information Officer
