  • Computer Safety 101
  • Good Morning
  • Computer Safety 101
  • Today we will be discussing Computer Safety.
  • https://ist.mit.edu/security/tips Patch, Patch, PATCH! Set up your computer for automatic software and operating system updates. An unpatched machine is more likely to have software vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Install protective software. Sophos is available as a free download for Windows, Mac, and Linux from IS&T's software grid. When installed, the software should be set to scan your files and update your virus definitions on a regular basis.
  • Choose strong passwords. Choose strong passwords with letters, numbers, and special characters to create a mental image or an acronym that is easy for you to remember. Create a different password for each important account, and change passwords regularly. Backup, Backup, BACKUP! Backing up your machine regularly can protect you from the unexpected. Keep a few months' worth of backups and make sure the files can be retrieved if needed. Download and install CrashPlan and learn how to back up your system.
  • Control access to your machine. Don't leave your computer in an unsecured area, or unattended and logged on, especially in public places. This includes Athena clusters and Quickstations. The physical security of your machine is just as important as its technical security. Most importantly, stay informed. Stay current with the latest developments for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Unix systems. IS&T publishes a monthly Security FYI blog post or subscribe to the IS&T Security-FYI electronic newsletter.
