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: February 2019
Volume 15, Number 6

With the spring semester in full swing, we wanted to highlight TTU IT resources available for you to use in support of institutional strategic goals and priorities. NBC Learn, as well as IT ShortCourses, are a rich resource for faculty and staff for professional development or to augment classroom instruction. For those traveling abroad this spring, we provide some guidelines for data security abroad, as well as a reminder about changes to accessing campus resources remotely. Finally, the TTU IT Division will be partnering with TTU Operations Division to host another Shred Week from March 25 through 29. Now is a good time to begin planning to rid your office of unneeded electronic and paper documents that contain confidential information. Go Tech!

Sam Segran
Chief Information Officer and Vice President for IT
