Cyber Security Awareness Training

November 3, 2015

As part of a UC system-wide effort to address the increasing threats to the security of our information systems and data, a comprehensive security awareness training program is being rolled out by UCOP for all staff and faculty.

What do I need to do?
Starting Monday, November 2nd, all employees on payroll with active status will be required to complete the Cyber Security Awareness Training.  The training must be completed by January 31st, 2016 and within 6 weeks for any subsequent new hires.  This will be required annually.

Where is training available?
This training is video based and delivered online through our UC Learning Center’s website. You will receive an email notification with instructions on how to access the training. Each module will focus on a specific security topic and conclude with three questions to test comprehension.  The training should take approximately 50 minutes to complete.

Why do I need to do this?
This training program will better prepare all of us to strengthen our defenses against future attacks. Studies have shown that a substantial number of cyber attacks involve the unintended actions of users of information systems, and this risk can be significantly lowered through an effective security awareness training program.
