What other security software should I have on my system?

Printer-friendly version

Good antivirus or Internet security suite software packages will do a good job of keeping malware and hackers out of your computer. HSU's email system is GMail, which incorporates strong anti-spam and anti-phishing capabilities, so that's taken care of. You should have a firewall enabled - Windows systems will not be allowed to connect to the wireless network unless the Windows Firewall is enabled.

There is a section on the HSU website called Security: What You Need to Know; it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with this section - it's really a short, practical guide to protecting your privacy and confidential information, as well as that of others on the network, while you're at HSU.
