All UI employees in an IT job classification will be assigned to complete a new SANS “Securing the Human” awareness training within the next six months. The online training is accessible through the “My Training” link in Employee-Self Service. The tutorials take about an hour, with a series of brief required and recommended modules. They can be completed in one sitting or a few at a time.
A “security aware” IT workforce is key to protecting institutional data and systems, as well as personal information. The fundamental guidance this training provides will be helpful as IT staff interact with the general workforce on campus.
All other UI employees are encouraged to complete the training, and depending on their role it may be mandatory. Integration with the new “compliance and qualifications” tool in Employee Self-Service will send automated reminders prior to the completion deadline, and supervisors and HR representatives will receive status reports. Please contact Chief Information Security Officer Jane Drews with questions.
