Security awareness and training are important in bridging the gap between the controls to protect data and the human interatction with that data. 

Information Technology Services has a security website:  http://security.appstate.edu where Basic Computer Secuirity is discussed as well as the latest phishing attempts on campus.

Desktops and laptops provided by the university should be running the university build. Doing so automatically provides the essential three security requirements:

  1. Automatic Updates
  2. Up to date Antivirus
  3. Properly configured host firewall
