Cyber Security Tip Of The Day

At Canisius, all Windows-based computers should be running Microsoft Forefront anti-virus software.  Users who see an alert window or popup from any other security software on a college computer are likely being tricked into an unnecessary piece of software (or worse).  Faculty and staff should call the ITS Help Desk at Ext. 2299 if they see something alerting them to download anti-virus software other than Microsoft Forefront.
