In order to comply with the December 7, 2022 directive by Governor Abbott, Lone Star College created the Lone Star College Prohibited Technologies Security Policy which includes a list of software, applications (including TikTok), and hardware products identified as being security concerns that will be removed and/or blocked on all LSC-owned devices. This includes LSC-owned cell phones, tablets, desktop and laptop computers, and other internet-capable devices. The listed "prohibited technologies" are not to be installed or used on any personal devices used to conduct College business, which includes accessing any College-owned data, applications, email accounts, non-public facing communications, iStar, and any other College-owned databases or applications. The Lone Star College Prohibited Technologies Security Policy applies to all LSC full- and part-time employees including contractors, paid or unpaid interns, and other users of state networks.
