Protect Your Personal Computer

Why Protect Your Computer

  • Your computer may contain personal and private information - notes, photos, contacts, documents, saved passwords, and more.
  • You may work with sensitive university data on your computer.

If you use a university or departmentally managed computer, such as a MiWorkspace computer, then your security settings are likely managed for you.

But if you use a personally owned computer, or self-manage your university-owned computer, then you are responsible for properly securing it.
