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!

IT Bulletin | Published: August 2016
Volume 13, Number 1

After 12 years of publishing our educational bulletin, TTU IT staff and student designers have refreshed the format to enhance readability and better accommodate online delivery. As TTU kicks off another bustling fall, this edition features key technology resources provided to the TTU community — learning opportunities, technology discounts, and TTU IT computing facilities. The Office of the Provost has once again provided our TTU community access to NBC Learn — a massive historical news archive, and we encourage you to use this rich research source. For those engaged in the Pokémon craze, we provide a few guidelines for protecting your personal information. Here’s to our first kick-off, cooler weather, and another record freshman class. Wreck ‘em Tech!
