Cyber Security Training 2017

Cyberattacks are a growing threat and can put intellectual property and research in jeopardy.

Take the Cyber Security Training by the February 28, 2017 deadline and be entered to win one of ten $50 Amazon gift cards, sponsored by the UCI Information Security and Privacy Committee (ISPC). Already completed the training? Great, you are already entered into the drawing.

Each of us has a responsibility to safeguard the information assets entrusted to us. In support of this, all University of California employees on active payroll status are required to take annual Cyber Security Awareness Training. A substantial number of cyberattacks involve the unintended actions of users of information systems, and this risk can be significantly lowered through an effective training program.

This year, the Office of the President is introducing a refresher course. Employees who took the full 2016 training may satisfy the annual requirement by taking this shorter course, which takes about 35 minutes. For those who have not completed the full course, the updated 2017 program should take about 55 minutes.

In either case, training must be accomplished by February 28, 2017.

You should have received an email from the UC Learning Center with instructions on how to complete the training.
