Launch of the Information Security Education Program

Posted October 17th, 2016 at 8:55 am.

Be an InfoSec Master!

(mobile-friendly version)

Today marks the launch of the College’s Information Security Education Program, providing all community members with an opportunity to master competencies pertinent to the security of the College’s sensitive data and their own; broad participation in the program will exponentially reduce the College’s security risk profile.

What does participation entail?

BadgeThe InfoSec Education Program consists of two components: viewing a series of short videos (created by SANS: Securing the Human) that focus on core information security topics and completing the Information Security Mastery Assessment. The assessment, which consists of multiple choice questions and interactive scenarios, is designed to allow you to self-evaluate your mastery of the Information Security Competencies. All materials will be delivered via Moodle (the College’s learning management system) within the Information Security Education Program course (see instructions below for accessing the course). Depending on your constituency and role, completing the full program will take between ~45-65 minutes to complete.

If you had completed the full InfoSec Education Program during 2015-2016, you are only responsible for completing the Mastery Assessment. If you did not complete the full program last year, you are responsible for completing the full program. If you’re not sure whether you completed the program last year or not, contact your supervisor or Dean for clarification.

All College community members are responsible for completing the program by 10/31.
