If your computer is insecure, you are putting not only your own work at risk but also that of others on the IU network.
Following the steps outlined in this section will greatly improve the overall security of your computer.
If you are in an IU department with IT support staff, always consult them about the preferred practices in your area. Also, don’t forget to secure all operating systems on your computer – if you have a Mac that runs Windows, make sure you secure both.
