Secure IT

Don't Take the Bait!

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) – observed every October – was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safe and secure online.

The theme for NCSAM is Our Shared Responsibility. ITS reminds all LMU users to create strong passwords to safeguard your identity and data.

Watch this video to see what happened if you have weak passwords.


The Information Security team is the primary point of contact for all information security issues on campus, including: computer hacking incidents, malware outbreaks, intrusion prevention, data loss prevention, vulnerability scanning, firewall auditing, guest and temporary access to resources, information security awareness training, privacy legislation compliance, PCI-DSS auditing and compliance, Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) notices, change control procedures and auditing, and much more.

This video will show you more about one of the ITS Security Team's biggest challenges: ransomware.

The team works to protect LMU's computing and information assets and to comply with federal and state laws, regulations, and policies. Explore ways you can stay safe online by clicking the icons below.
