Security Awareness Training

Security Awareness Training is a requirement of the many regulations the University must comply with each year.  All faculty and staff who access information resources must complete Security Awareness Training annually.  

There has been a significant increase in cyber attacks specifically targeted at colleges and universities by cyber criminals looking to steal academic research data, personal information, and money.  The online training teaches you how to identify common methods used by cyber attackers to gain access to account credentials and information systems. The training also provides tips and techniques to detect and defend against these threats.

The University has partnered with KnowBe4®, a leader in security awareness training, to offer online training that is engaging and relevant to safe computing on campus and at home.  The training has four main sections and takes about 30 minutes to complete.  To receive credit for the training, you will need to complete all four sections and respond to the short quizzes presented in each.  Faculty and staff may access the 2018 training course in UR Talent Web.

Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility and you are the best defense against cyber threats
