To help combat computer threats on the Internet, the University Information Security and Policy Office maintains security awareness education materials, to convey important computer security principles. Feedback received from previous years has enabled us to improve the online course to address these needs, and allow computer users to acquaint themselves with their roles and responsibilities in protecting university data and assets.

We recommend that all faculty, staff, and applicable student staff complete security awareness training. This course meets the requirement of various regulations that require security training (for persons with access to sensitive information), and takes on average only 30 - 60 minutes to complete.
