Coming Soon: Launch of the College’s InfoSec Education Program!

Posted September 13th, 2017 at 10:28 am.

October marks the start of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which also brings the launch of the College’s annual Information Security Education Program!

Beginning on Monday, 10/2/17 through 11/1/17, College community members will be responsible for reviewing key College policies and completing a series of instructional activities geared towards helping all community members attain mastery of the College’s Information Security Competencies.

Information security is a responsibility we all share, as our actions can significantly impact the entire College community and beyond. With both cyber and physical information security attacks increasing in complexity and frequency, it is crucial to continue to build and refresh our knowledge and skills around preventing, recognizing, and responding to information security threats.

What Am I Responsible for Doing?

Community members are responsible for completing the activities within the Information Security Education Program Moodle course in which they will be enrolled. These activities may consist of reviewing College policies and guidelines, viewing a series of short videos (Securing the Human), and/or completing the InfoSec Self-Evaluation. The number of activities you are responsible for completing is based on your participation in last year’s implementation. Community members who completed all required activities last year are only responsible for completing a set of refresher activities.

The following individuals will be exempt from completing any program activities this year:

  • First year students who had completed the program before arriving to campus
  • New faculty who had completed the program this summer/fall

 

How Do I Access and Complete the College’s InfoSec Education Program?

Instructions for accessing and completing the program in Moodle will be sent on Monday, 10/2.

Contact the Help Desk (help@brynmawr.edu, x7440) with any questions.
