All-Employee Security Awareness

Mandatory All-Employee Security Awareness Program

All UA employees, student workers and DCCs with access to University Information Resources are required to complete annual security awareness training.  To fulfill this requirement, the Information Security Office, with help from the campus community, has developed user-friendly online modules to ensure that all employees can easily participate in and complete the security awareness program.  The program has been designed to not only inform employees of their responsibilities as members of the UA community, but to also assist them in securing their information at home.
