Vulnerability Management

An important aspect of this office’s duties is to keep LSU network as secure as possible. IT Security and Policy office proactively scans the entire LSU network to identify security vulnerabilities.  Each vulnerability found increases a machine’s vulnerability score. Some vulnerabilities are more severe than others, and those vulnerabilities have a higher incremental value. High vulnerability scores are of particular concern.

IT Security and Policy Team shares the relevant information with stakeholders to ensure remediation activities can be carried out as quickly as possible.

If you have any questions regarding these scans or would like to receive reports for your department, please contact us at
