Keeping Your Computer Up to Date

In compliance with UB’s official policies, ensure that your computer and its security measures stay current to protect yourself from new threats.


On your personally owned computer, take advantage of the software update services made available by Microsoft (Windows computers) and Apple (Macintosh computers). If your computer is UB-owned, your department will decide when and how to make updates.


Antivirus is available free for download by UB students, faculty and staff to protect your personally owned computer or device against computer viruses and malware.
