Computer viruses and other malicious software can destroy important data, compromise security, and generate a large volume of network traffic. Infected computers can have a disastrous effect on SU's network and on the campus's ability to accomplish core business activities and instructional functions. In order to protect the campus computing infrastructure, users must have antivirus software installed and updated on their computers.

Campus Computers
