The security software development company Malwarebytes publishes a list of security facts and fallacies about Macs. The article covers topics such as Macs don't get viruses, Macs are more secure than Windows, Mac OSX has a built in anti-malware software, and Macs don't need security software. Find out which one is true at the article listed below.

Also, if you have an university owned Mac, you can have Symantec Endpoint Protection installed on your Macbook at no charge. Contact the DECS Support office for more information. 

As for personal computers, there are many free antivirus software available along with paid ones. As an MSU employee, faculty or student, you are eligible for a free copy of Symantec Endpoint Protection. Instructions for installing the software can be found on the MSU IT Services helpdesk system (https://itservicedesk.msu.edu/).
