Run a virus scan now to be proactive in protecting your data and your IT account. #AnnounceIT

With so many members of our campus community returning from Spring Break, this is a prime time for phishing and other email attacks. Be proactive in protecting your data and your IT accounts from these possible attacks by:

  • Running a virus scan. The Healthy Computing article on the IT KnowledgeBase is where you can learn how to download and run Symantec Endpoint Protection on your computer.
  • Following the suggestions at Protecting your computer from malware if you receive a suspicious email.
  • Browsing to the IT KnowledgeBase Spam article to learn more about DePauw's guidelines for official communications.

  • Please contact the HelpDesk at HelpDesk@depauw.edu or (765) 658-4294 with any questions or concerns.
