Heightened Cybersecurity Alert!!!
The United States Department of Homeland Security recently issued a National Terrorism Advisory System Bulletin indicating a heightened threat of cyber and physical attacks to our country based on recent government activities and tensions.
Currently there has not been any specific, credible cyber threat to our homeland or our college. However, it is asked that everyone remains vigilant and maintain a heightened sense of awareness.
Remember, if you see something, say something®. It is important that you pay close attention to any college communications being sent as it relates to cybersecurity. The role you play is extremely important in our efforts to detect and remediate any attempts to infect our technology systems from malicious activity.
Please know that the Office of Information Technology team continues to monitor our systems to detect and defend against threats and continue to participate in system office and State calls surrounding this important matter.
LCTCS Cyber Security Program
The LCTCS Cyber Security Program has made available to each LCTCS institution, the KnowBe4 Security Awareness and Training Portal. KnowBe4 was initiated to help familiarize employees with 'social engineering' attack techniques designed to trick them into clicking on fraudulent links or opening malicious attachments in emails. All Delgado employees are required participate in the mandatory training on a quarterly basis. In addition to security training, simulated phishing emails will be sent regularly to help you practice the skills learned as part of your training.
