UMB IT Anti-Virus Policy
Applies to Faculty, Staff, Students
Incorrectly configured or absent anti-virus software on campus workstations and servers has become one of the greatest threats to the campus network community. It is imperative that we take a proactive approach in making sure that all computers connected to the campus network are properly configured and protected with anti-virus technology.
To protect every system connected to the campus network from infection by viruses, worms, trojans, and other malicious software.
This policy applies to every workstation physically (including wireless) connected to any part of the campus network.
To comply with Section VII, item 1, General Controls of the USM Guidelines in Response to the State IT Security Policy which requires USM institutions to implement formal controls on all institutionally owned systems that store and/or access nonpublic information.
Standard virus protection programs must be installed, updated, and maintained on all microcomputers, LAN servers, and mail servers. These programs must:
Be configured to run checks for viruses at startup and operate in memory-resident mode to check for viruses during normal processing
Be updated as soon as updates are available from the vendor
