Computer security checkups

Enterprise Information Technology Services will hold its free, biannual Computer Health and Security Health Fair April 3 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the second floor lobby of the Miller Learning Center.

At the event, technical volunteers will run a security check of personal computers. This includes ensuring that firewalls are enabled and that antivirus and operating systems are up to date. Technicians also will look for other problems, such as slow performance, Web browser pop-ups and unknown error messages.

Participants also will learn the best practices for securing their computers against intrusions, virus infections and account compromises.

University department-issued computers will not be checked at the fair.
