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: November 2017
Volume 14, Number 6

Happy New Year! As is customary, we will dedicate our first Bulletin of the new calendar year to highlighting selected performance metrics for the IT Division from FY17, in support of institutional goals and strategic priorities. In December 2017, at our annual Year in Review, we also launched the TTU Office of the CIO Excellence in IT Innovation Award. This award was created to recognize TTU areas and departments that have demonstrated exemplar innovative and/or highly successful technology-based service implementations. For FY 2018 awards, we will begin taking nominations in the summer. Again, we thank you for your continued collaboration and partnership as we work together to serve the TTU Community.
