What can I do to secure my computer?

All workstations should use antivirus software for protection against malware. ITSS Information Security provides McAfee Antivirus software that can be downloaded at AntiVirus Download with a valid EUID and password. The antivirus software should be configured for regular updates and automatic scans to remain effective. In addition, you can reduce your risk of compromise by following these practices:

  • Keep all software up to date.
  • Backup your data.
  • Download files and applications from trusted sources only.
  • Be wary of hyperlinks in emails and only click on links you expected to receive.
