Security Awareness

For the university’s Institutional Risk Management Program (IRMP), user-related risk is important. We must ensure all users of university systems and everyone who accesses data is equipped with the skills that will protect those valuable assets.

To comply with the IRMP (IT16) requirement, all users who access university systems or data must complete a minimum of 1 hour of information security awareness training every year. Our online Securing Awareness training course is an easy way to meet this requirement.

Securing Awareness training explains how you play an important role in protecting our university and how you are an “information gatekeeper.” In addition, the concept of creating a strong cyber shield is introduced. When you work through the training you will quickly see how the information will enable you to take control of and protect your cyber activities, both at home and at work.

The Information Security Standards require us to complete one hour of security awareness activities each year. The Security Awareness team is pleased to provide all employees with awareness training with practical steps for protecting yourself online.
