Information services provides annual online cybersecurity awareness training for staff and faculty. This year’s course includes 20 minutes of video, covering five core topics. Why is raising cybersecurity awareness so important to our campus? Even with the most advanced security technologies such as firewalls and anti-virus tools, what cyber attackers ultimately count on is human error. In this course you will be introduced to the social engineering methods that attackers use to fool you into providing unauthorized access. By taking a few simple steps and avoiding certain actions you can help prevent cyber attacks and data theft.
The course, “Cybersecurity Core Training 2019”, will be live and accessible from the ‘Custom Course Menu‘ in Moodle starting October 4. Current staff and faculty will be auto-enrolled. The target date for completion is November 1. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this training, please contact the Technology Help Desk (x7000, firstname.lastname@example.org).
