This study investigates the status of the existing network security, potential risks, and the possible solutions to the existing network problems. The descriptive research design was used using a survey questionnaire as its main instrument in the conduct of the study. Findings reveal that the current status of the network security of the State University needs improvement as it handles complex information and is important in the university's day-to-day transactions. The university needs to undergo intensive evaluation and system analyses to ensure that their operation will not be hampered by Malicious software or cyber hackers.
