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: July 2016
Volume 12, Number 10

Summer school continues to grow this year, along with a myriad of summer camps and other campus activities. In this issue we provide information about connecting to the network - enhancements to remote desktop access, using our upgraded lecture capture solution, and the retirement of an aging technology. We also offer guidelines to spot and avoid "like-farming". We invite you to attend one of our ShortCourses, or to utilize our computer based training (cbt.ttu.edu). Lastly, please invite family and friends to join the Lubbock ITAlert List. Enjoy the summer - Guns Up!
