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 TechZone Security Measures.
