Cybersecurity Tip #3 - Protect IT: if you connect, you must protect

It's essential to take proactive measures to enhance cybersecurity at home, at work, and when you're out and about. In previous weeks, we addressed how to best own and secure your personal information. Now, we need to safeguard all of that invaluable data, so here are some tips to help you "Protect IT."

Keep a Clean Machine:

Keep software current - Having the most up-to-date mobile security software, web browser, operating system and apps is the best defense against viruses, malware and other online threats, so keep your software updated to the latest version available. Turn on automatic updates so that you don’t have to think about it, and set your security software to run regular scans. If prompted to update your device, don't hesitate—do it immediately.
Delete when done - Many of us download apps for specific purposes, such as planning vacations, and no longer need them afterwards, or we may have previously downloaded apps that are longer useful or interesting to us. It’s a good security practice to delete all apps you no longer use.
Protect Your Personal Information:

Secure your devices - Use strong passphrases, passcodes, or other features such as touch identification to lock your devices. Securing your device can help protect your information if your device is lost or stolen and keep prying eyes out.
Now you see me, now you don't - Some stores and other locations look for devices with WiFi or Bluetooth turned on to track your movements while you are within range. Disable WiFi and Bluetooth when not in use.
For more ideas to help you Protect IT, check out these 5 Steps to Protecting Your Digital Home from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) (

**Remember: if you connect, you must protect.**

Computing Services invites you to the Adams State University 2019 Homecoming Alumni Banquet on Friday, October 18, 2019.

Homecoming 2019 Alumni banquet will honor the Honorable Carlos F. Lucero, circuit judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit. His successful career began as a student here at Adams State University where he earned his degree and was an adjunct professor of legal studies.

The Hon. Carlos F. Lucero, circuit judge of the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, will be the 49th recipient of the Billy Adams Award, which recognizes those who exhibit dedication to education shown by the University’s founder and namesake. The Billy Adams Award is part of Saturday's Adams State Homecoming Alumni Banquet. “I’ve been privileged to have a good life. It all started with education for me,” said Lucero, who grew up in Antonito with his parents, Margaret and Antonio Lucero, and five siblings. He is a 1961 graduate of Adams State and was an adjunct professor of legal studies at Adams State from 1966 until 1989. In 1995 Lucero was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, in Denver, by President Bill Clinton. To read more and for a full list of Homecoming activities visit

Scammers demand gift cards 10/17/2019

Cybersecurity Tip # 2 Secure IT: play it hard to get

This week's cybersecurity focus is to "Secure IT." by educating yourself about phishing. The simple definition of phishing is social engineering using digital methods for malicious purposes. The definition is fluid due to constantly changing technologies, but some examples include:

Malicious Email - It can look like it comes from a financial institution, an e-commerce site, a government agency or any other service or business. It often urges you to act quickly, because your account has been compromised, your order cannot be fulfilled, or there is another urgent matter to address.
Spear Phishing - Spear phishing involves highly specialized attacks against specific targets or small groups of targets to collect information or gain access to systems. A recent example here on campus was a targeted email to students from a purported ASU alum regarding a (fake) job opportunity for dog care.
Imposter Scams - Gift cards are a great way to give a gift. But did you know they are also a scammer’s favorite way to steal money? Gift cards and reloading of cards is the #1 payment method for imposter scams. This scam is so widespread that the Federal Trade Commission set up a webpage to address the issue:
Spam & Phishing on Social Networks - Spam, phishing and other scams aren’t limited to just email. They’re also prevalent on social networking sites. The same rules apply on social networks: When in doubt, throw it out. This rule applies to links in online ads, status updates, tweets and other posts.
An attack can have devastating results. For individuals, this includes unauthorized purchases, the stealing of funds, or identify theft. For corporate and government networks, phishing is often used to gain a foothold as part of a larger attack.

Criminals are always looking for ways to hook you with a new phishing scam, so play hard to get. For some simple tips to Secure IT., check out this flyer from our friends at the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Careers and Studies: How to spot and avoid phish.

Computing Services is here to help you with cybersecurity and answer any questions you may have. Feel free to contact us at (719) 587-7741, [email protected], or stop by our offices in the Computing Services building.

October is Cybersecurity Month

This week's cybersecurity focus is to "Own IT." by managing your privacy.

Your devices -- smartphones, laptops, and wearables -- make it easy to connect to the world around you, but they can also pack a lot of info about you and your friends and family, such as your contacts, photos, videos, locations and health and financial data. Here are a couple of tips to help manage your privacy in an always-on world:

Think before you app: Information about you, such as the games you like to play, your contacts list, where you shop and your location, has value, just like money. Be thoughtful about who gets that information and how it's collected through apps. Remember, personal information is like money. Value it. Protect it.
Update your privacy settings: Want to view or change your privacy/security settings for all your different accounts, but don't know where to find them? Our friends at the National Cyber Security Alliance have put together a list of links for popular apps, devices and online services, including social networks, email accounts, search engines, and more. Check it out here: Manage Your Privacy Settings.

Computing Services welcomes all students participating in the Student Support Services Summer Scholars program.

The Student Support Services Summer Scholars program is the entry door to the SSS program for incoming freshman.

It is a great opportunity for freshmen to become oriented with Adams State University, earn college credit, and receive a scholarship before they begin their freshmen year at Adams State University.

Students live on campus for three weeks during the summer and participate in classes, academic counseling, and a variety of challenging and enriching activities.


Thinking about transferring to Adams State University? Now it is easier than ever. Adams State has joined the interstate passport network of schools. This makes it easier for students leaving smaller two year or some four year institutions and opens doors to allow more options so that credits transfer over easier.

Transferring to Adams State just got a lot simpler and easier. Adams State becomes the first institution in Colorado to join the Interstate Passport Network (IPN), a nationwide network of two- and four-year colleges and universities that allows students to transfer lower division general education credits as a block to any IPN member institution. With Adams State’s membership, the network consists of 31 institutions across 13 states. Read more here on what it all means:


Congratulations to the Adams State Nursing program on being ranked top 10 best nursing programs in Colorado by ASU has a National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) Pass Rating of 90.44. The article emphasizes the highlights of smaller classes and how that helps students on campus.

Here is what says about Adams State in its rankings of 10 Best Nursing Schools in Colorado: "Tucked between the San Juan and Sangre de Cristo mountain ranges is Adams State University. Adams State University offers the benefits of a public school (i.e. in-state tuition), but with the small class sizes, you’d expect to find at a private school. This means that their BSN program is going to have smaller, more intimate classes than other Colorado schools. Along with preparing you for the NCLEX, Adams also introduces nurses to the National Student Nurses’ Association, a group that can help launch your career once you graduate." Adams State has the only BSN program in the San Luis Valley. We're accepting nursing students for the Spring 2020 cohort.
