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: August 2017
Volume 14, Number 1

For those returning from a summer break or off-campus activities, welcome back! Once again, our IT staff are gearing up for a busy semester to help faculty, staff and students. As is customary, we dedicate the first bulletin in the fall semester to highlighting selected TTU IT resources available to the TTU community. In this issue we will review a selection of IT resources, provide an update on our enterprise video capture solution, and remind the campus community about the TTU Acceptable Use Policy for data and information resources. We are also reprinting an article I was invited to write by CIO Applications Magazine last year on technology trends in higher education. We look forward to another academic year of collaborations, partnerships, and contributions in support of Texas Tech University's strategic priorities. Go Tech!

Sam Segran
Associate Vice President for IT and Chief Information Officer
