IDP Training

The Institutional Data Policy (IDP) training is required annually for individuals who have access to restricted data and for anyone who requires access to certain administrative systems including PeopleSoft, eReports, Operational Data Stores, Financial Data Warehouse and Student Analytics. A user's college or department may also require this training.

In addition to this training, we can recommend resources from collection of more than 100 non-fiction books on the topics of privacy and security. Visit the Resources page at the Privacy and Security Forum's site.
