Data Protection Risk Assessment

A Data Protection Risk Assessment (DPRA) is a process involving the Service Delivery and Quality group, the Information Security group, and the Privacy Office that is used to determine the level of risk to security and privacy of data associated with the purchase and use of an IT system or service.

Multi-factor Authentication​​

Microsoft Azure Multi-Factor Authentication is the university’s multi-factor authentication (MFA) mechanism that protects your MyCarletonOne (MC1) account from illicit login attempts. When Azure MFA is enabled, logging onto many university services requires that you provide something you know (your MC1 username and password), and something you have (your phone or tablet configured with the Microsoft Authenticator app).

Threat Intelligence

The security team works with a number of external partners to receive intelligence on emerging threats to the university network. Relevant information is shared with appropriate individuals on campus to help mitigate threats.

Vulnerability Scanning

ITS Security employs scanning tools to identify vulnerabilities across the campus network. We communicate findings and work with service owners and administrators to suggest solutions and mitigations.
