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 2018
Volume 14, Number 8

The Office of the CIO designated April 16th through 20th as TTU IT Spring Cleaning Week. In this issue, we offer suggestions for "cleaning" your website, devices, and storage. As is customary, the IT Division and the TTU Operations Division sponsored Shred Week, allowing departments to securely discard unneeded documents that contain personally identifiable information and other unneeded documents. "Spring Cleaning" your TTU IT equipment and resources allows the institution to extend the life of equipment, reduce unnecessary consumption of resources, and destroy unneeded data that could pose risk. Together we can strive to increase IT resource efficiencies and optimize resource utilization. Go Tech!

Sam Segran
Chief Information Officer and Vice President for IT
