Information Security Tip of the Month

Helping you stay secure

Don’t install unauthorized programs on your work computer 

  • Malicious applications often pose as legitimate programs like games, tools or even antivirus software
  • If you think an application could be useful to you and would like to install it on your desktop or laptop, send an email to itsupport@uttyler.edu so that the program can be reviewed and approved by Campus Computing Services.

Security threats are here to stay and changing constantly over time. But by following this tip and others like it, you won’t accidentally put yourself and UT Tyler in a compromised position.
