IT Security Awareness Training program for faculty and staff launches this week

Oct 2, 2017

Data breaches are a growing concern for organizations across the world, and recent statistics show that a significant number of breaches begin with unintended actions by users. University of the Pacific is committed to protecting our information systems and data, and is launching an information security awareness program for our employees. Information security training is one of the best ways the university can lower its risk.

The training is now available and features short videos and quizzes on topics that will help protect university data. All faculty and staff and all student workers who handle sensitive data are required to complete the course by January 31, 2018. Optional training on how to secure personal information from malicious computer attacks and fraud and other topics, is available here

The university is setting a goal of 100 percent of new employees being trained within the first 30 days of employment, and 100 percent of current employees completing the training program biannually. 

October is national Cyber Security Awareness Month, dedicated to help increase awareness of information security. This training can help protect the university and your personal information from cyberattacks. For questions or more information, please contact the Stockton help desk at 209.946.7400, or
