Sending and receiving email, file sharing and browsing websites may seem innocuous on the surface, but if you’re not careful these activities can open your computer to countless vulnerabilities. Email messages can easily be forged and they’re often used to launch malware. Malicious web sites can install software on your computer or collect personal information from your computer.
Here are a few basic things to keep in mind:
Access to OIT systems requires the use of secure clients and encrypted authentication. Not only does it help protect our network from malicious computer attacks and stolen logins, passwords, etc., but also new federal grant rules require secure computer practices.
Every desktop computer must have current and up-to-date operating systems and antivirus software. OIT has information about downloading up to date Mac or Windows operating systems, and a campus license for students to download antivirus software.
