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: July 2017
Volume 13, Number 8

We hope this bulletin finds you enjoying the summer months, and personal time to relax. For those traveling, we provide tips on protecting your personal information and data while vacationing. For those who "travel" via Facebook, beware of criminal tactics that target the simple practice of "sharing" and "liking." Summer is also a time that many devote to learning and preparing, so we have included information on our new HR online training catalog—a collaborative endeavor with Jodi Billingsley and her staff. For those looking to invest in a new system before the fall, we provide information on faculty and staff hardware discounts. Go Tech!

Sam Segran
Associate Vice President for IT and Chief Information Officer
