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: April 2017
Volume 13, Number 7

Amidst record high spring temperatures in West Texas, the IT Division is busily engaged in another hectic semester. Our campus hit a milestone with our lecture capture system—Mediasite—one million video views! For the last several years, we have been working to enhance our High Performance Computing services, and in this issue we provide an update on those activities. We will also launch a new technical application to manage access to IT resources, making the process more convenient for the TTU community. We also thank Sean Childers and the Operations Division for their partnership in another successful Shred Week. Go Tech!

Sam Segran
Associate Vice President for IT and Chief Information Officer
