Important Note

Before using the Spider Utility, we recommend that you talk with your local Department TSP or the ITS Security and Policy Office (lsu.edu/itsecurity).
 

Security of Data Polity Statement (PS02.20)

In accordance with PS06.20 - Security Of Data, it is essential that Sensitive Data be protected.  These terms are defined by the policy.  It is very important to understand that Sensitive Data could exist on your computer hard drive. When there is a loss of data through a security breach, a social engineering attack, or a hardware failure, there is a potential for financial damage to the University and the individual responsible.

  • Data is classified as - "all information that is used by or belongs to the University, or that is processed, stored, maintained, transmitted, copied on, or copied from University computing resources."
     
  • Protected Information is classified as - "data that has been designated as private or confidential by law or by the University. Protected information includes, but is not limited to, employment records, medical records, student records, education records, personal financial records (or other personally identifiable information), research data, trade secrets, and classified government information. Protected information shall not include public records that by law must be made available to the general public. To the extent there is any uncertainty as to whether any data constitutes protected information, the data in question shall be treated as protected information until a determination is made by the University or proper legal authority."
