According to Karl Hassler, director of IT Security and Compliance, “Securing your computer is the single most impactful step you can take toward cyber security. Each of us has a responsibility to ourselves, our families and the campus community to ensure that our computers are secure when we connect.”
According to Hassler, securing a computer is simpler than many people think it is.
Essential security features are built into most computers and only need to be enabled or updated to offer effective protection. Some operating systems even offer security dashboards that allow computer owners to control features like antivirus and firewall protection all in one place.
