With a hacker arrested last week after breaching the college.s security 
system and class registration coming up, the Information Technology 
department of Georgia Highlands College has its hands full.

"It's a tremendous burden on our IT system," said GHC public relations 
director Dana Davis.

The department will be running tests on the computer system to determine 
if all of the viruses in the system have been found. Also, additional 
steps will be taken to protect the private information of students while 
attempting to keep the computers accessible.

"We have over 2,000 computers," said Dana Davis public relations 
director with the college. "We're trying to walk that tightrope between 
accessibility and security."
