Is your laptop safe from all of the never-ending cyber security concerns? A free computer check from University of Georgia technology professionals may give you an answer.
The University’s Enterprise Information Technology Services (EITS) will offer its free, bi-annual Computer Health and Security Fair on Wednesday, April 3, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the second floor lobby of the Miller Learning Center.
“The Computer Health and Security Fair is designed to assist students, faculty and staff with security-related concerns on their personal computers,” said Justin Williams, EITS Help Desk manager. “We provide free anti-virus removal, and security consultations and check-ups to ensure the computer is using the latest and most secure software and plugins. Our purpose is to promote safe computer usage across the University campus.”
At the event, technical volunteers will run a security check of personal computers that includes ensuring that firewalls are enabled, and antivirus and operating systems are up to date. Technicians will also look for other problems, such as slow performance, web browser pop-ups and unknown error messages.
Participants will also learn the best practices for securing their computers against intrusions, virus infections and account compromises, Williams said.
University department-issued computers will not be checked at the fair.
