Information Technology

Security Information

The Information Technology department protects LCSC computer networks and the information that flows over it. IT provides a variety of services to help minimize the occurrence and risk of security incidents. We work closely with the state of Idaho and other security organizations to keep informed of the latest security threats. 

Behind the scenes
IT performs the following functions:
  • Risk assessments
  • Vulnerability scans
  • Penetration tests on network and servers
  • Monitoring through a Log and Event Management system
  • Intrusion/security incident response
  • Development of security policies and guidelines
Awareness and Training

IT provides awareness and training through the intranet and the Professional Development Training classes. New threats are disseminated through the campus intranet page and student start page on the LCMail system. Ongoing threats are presented in a classroom setting to assist users in identifying potential security threats such as phishing attacks, email scams, and scareware alerts.
