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 4

It's hard to believe that we are approaching the close of another whirlwind fall semester at Texas Tech University. The IT Division has been collaborating with campus areas on a number of new initiatives. In this issue, we will highlight the Advanced Threat Protection for email, and the new Symantec software upgrade, as our latest additions to the TTU IT Security Program. We have been facilitating a discussion between Apple and Microsoft to address a known issue for iOS users, and have included information about the scope of the current impact that we hope Apple resolves soon. Finally, we provide a reminder to please work with the TTU Office of the CIO when planning large IT projects and purchases, so that we can expedite review during the purchasing process. Please also note that we should be included in large non-IT projects where you are needing eRaider Authentication, eCommerce, Banner integration, or other institutional information technology resources.

Associate Vice President for IT and Chief Information Officer
