Computer Health and Security Fair

Tuesday, April 1, 2014 - 9:23am

Computer viruses and malware are no joke - today or any other day. Viruses routinely result in billions of dollars of lost productivity and lost network operation time.

Today and tomorrow, our own Office of Information Technology, partnering with EITS, will offer free laptop security check ups for the university community:

Two departments at the University of Georgia will host the spring Computer Health and Security Fair April 1-2, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the second floor lobby of the Miller Learning Center.

UGA students, faculty and staff are invited to bring their personal laptops for free security checks during the two-day event.

Technical volunteers will provide free virus and malware removal, and offer security consultations and checkups to ensure that laptops are using the latest and most secure software and plug-ins.

...

"Partnering with EITS on the Computer Health and Security Fair creates an excellent opportunity for faculty and staff in Franklin College to have technical professionals perform security checkups on their personal laptops," said Christine Miller, assistant dean and IT executive director for Franklin College

Come on down, open of your laptop and say, "Ahhh."
