IT Security in the College of Letters and Science

Computer security is one of the foremost concerns of the College of Letters & Science.  The campus Security Baseline project (2012-2014) and updates in the campus data security policies have put an increased emphasis on the security of our computers, servers and email.

L&S Learning Support Services offers a variety of security services.

LSS TechZone security

The LSS TechZone supports desktop computers and servers in approximately 23 L&S departments.  Workstations in TechZone-managed departments are monitored daily for viruses and malware, patched bi-weekly, and scanned for restricted data each month.  We use software offered by the central campus to keep the computers fully-patched, compliant with campus IT policies, and safe from intrusion. More information about security measures for TechZone-supported computers can be found at http://lss.wisc.edu/security-measures.

Security Consulting

A security consultant is available to all L&S departments, centers and institutes for:

  • reviewing software solutions and current practices in the College of Letters & Science. 
  • answering questions about restricted and sensitive data handling.
  • providing security presentations for your group or department
  • assisting with digital intrusions and incidents
  • acting as a liaison with DoIT.
