Data security is crucial to all academic, clinical, and business operations at Yale. All existing and new business and data processes should include a data security review to be sure Yale data is safe from loss and secured against unauthorized access. If you do not have antivirus software installed, visit the ITS Software Library to download Symantec AntiVirus now. Also, please ensure your operating system software is up-to-date as well.
