What to do if Infected with Malware
What is Information Security Doing
 Monitoring:
• Through network equipment we watch
for potential threats and will notify if we
suspect a threat.
 Support:
• User Services will help to restore your
system and if possible protect your data.
 Education:
• Through programs like this and new
CBTs we work to inform users of threats
and safeguards.
 Endpoint protections:
• Through tools such as anti-virus we work
to protect users computers against
malware threats and attacks.
What can you do if you suspect you have been
 Remove your computer from the network:
• If you suspect you have a virus power
down your computer and unplug the
network connection immediately.
 Change all of your passwords:

 Contact the Helpdesk:
• The helpdesk is your first line of support.
They have a protocol for managing
malware infected systems.
 Inventory your data:
• LIS makes no promises of being able to
recover locally stored data. Begin an
inventory off all data and where you have
it stored. This will aid in the recovery
process as well as assessing where we
need to look for potential corruption.

Data Classification – What to Collect and How
What is the Risk
• Loss of Data
Exposure of Data
Corruption of Data
• Reputational Damage
Fines and Loss of Revenue
Legal Repercussions
PCI-DSS: How Schools Compare
PCI-DSS: What Does it Mean to Middlebury and You
Compliance with PCI determines our
ability to process credit cards
A data breach could include your data.
A breach could result in penalties and
fines as well as reputational damage.
As a data processor or an MDRP you are
partially responsible for the protection of
the card holder data.
Middlebury has committed to PCI
through policy and practice.
Middlebury will not accept payment cards
by email or fax and does not store card
data in written form.
A part of PCI-DSS includes education
which will help you better understand the
security concerns
