Policy Summary/Purpose:
The purpose of this policy is to describe the responsibilities of
individuals, departments and the Office of Information Technology (IT) in
ensuring the protection of University of Mississippi (UM) computer systems
against virus infections. A virus is a piece of self-replicating code,
most often a malicious software program designed to destroy or damage
information on computers. Some viruses cause no damage, but a
significant number are specifically designed to cause data loss.
Potential sources of viruses include shared media such as floppy disks
or CDs, e-mail (specifically, e-mail attachments), and documents
downloaded from the Internet. A virus infection is almost always
costly to the institution, whether through the loss of data (possibly
permanent), staff time to recover a system, or the delay of important work.
