For Faculty, STaff, and Students

This is our main awareness course, and while it’s targeted at faculty, employees, and students it will work for everyone – leadership, contractors and vendors, even trustees and alumni.

The course currently consists of 10 video lessons totaling just over 60 minutes and can include closed captions. More lessons will be added shortly.

Each lesson can be modified for your needs at no cost, including the addition of your logo, welcome messages, and call-to-action (where to report a phishing email, for example).

Key messages include:

  • Security awareness is a responsibility and an opportunity but not your fault.
  • Vigilance is one of the most powerful ways to defeat most threats.
  • All you really need are a handful of good behaviors and choices.
  • Security is a shared responsibility.
  • A respect for privacy is also key for security.
