Other Protection Tips

Here are some other protection tips:

  • Do not go to websites that your browser gives you a security warning for
  • Always install the most recent versions of software like Acrobat web browsers and other apps
  • Install and update virus checkers
  • Don't install apps you don't need
  • Only install apps from sources you trust
  • Don't install ad-ins from the web unless you absolutely need them
  • Install and update firewalls

If you believe you have been attacked or if your Western account has been compromised, contact ITS immediately. Similarly, if you think your bank or credit card information has been compromised, contact your financial institutions to let them know.
