Information Security Training

Information Security Training is necessary to ensure that every University employee has the same understanding of what information security is and how each piece of information should be handled.

It is imperative that we protect and secure the University's information. This is not a task that can be accomplished by any one person, because of this, it is essential that we have your assistance and support.
