Keep Your Information Safe

 

New computer viruses are created daily and used to expose security holes in your computer's operating system and software. Viruses can affect your computer's ability to operate correctly and even allow outside sources to access the information stored in your hard drive or in your personal settings, including sensitive personal information.

 

 

Updates are created and issued frequently to protect your computer as new viruses are developed. It is important to install these updates regularly to ensure that your computer is protected.

 

 

Maintain Your Computer's Security


The following tips can help you protect your computer from intrusive viruses and spyware.

  • Install anti-virus, anti-spyware, and firewall protection software. Some operating systems, such as Windows XP, provide built-in firewall support.
  • Check for updates for your software frequently. Enable automatic updates for your operating system and protection software whenever possible to ensure that your software is updated as the updates are released.
  • Don't open email attachments if you don't know what they are. Viruses can send an email that appears to be from a trusted contact when it actually contains a virus meant to compromise your computer.
  • Password-protect documents that contain sensitive information, such as account numbers, passwords, and card numbers.

 

The following software is available to provide protection from viruses, spam, and spyware. Before installing any new software, be sure to back up your data.*
