The University of Connecticut is now offering on-line security training for all staff and faculty. This training is highly encouraged for all UConn employees and is a major component of our overall strategy to improve IT security at UConn. Technology alone will not protect the University from data loss or the cyber threat that could compromise our sensitive data, intellectual property, research data, technology resources, students, staff, and faculty. To assist departments, schools, colleges, faculty, and staff in implementing local and individual protections, the University Information Security Office has partnered with SANS, a worldwide leader in Information Security training, to provide all UConn faculty and staff with on-line Information Security Training. This engaging, professional, video-based training is presented in 1 to 7 minute segments and should take between 45 to 60 minutes to complete. The entire training does not have to be viewed in a single sitting; videos can be viewed individually and paused for your convenience.
The training, available through HuskyCT (Blackboard), will be available for all University faculty and staff beginning Monday, December 13, 2010. To access the training:
- Open a web browser (i.e., Internet Explorer, Firefox)
- Open HuskyCT (Blackboard) http://huskyct.uconn.edu
- Click Login
- Enter your UConn NetID and password
