Information Security Awareness Training
Faculty and Staff
The protection of Bryant University assets and confidential information from unauthorized access is a university-wide effort. The university invests significant resources in securing its information assets. However, information security technologies alone will not adequately secure university assets without the full support of all employees.
The university provides employee awareness training to help build a culture of information security competence. The training is intended to give faculty and staff practical tips on how to better protect university assets and recognize threats. The training also provides a security foundation that enables employees to understand and react appropriately to real and potential information security issues. Additionally, the training ensures the university is in compliance with regulations that require some form of training and awareness activities be provided to employees.
University employees undertake the security awareness training on an annual basis. The training is offered through our SANS Security Awareness service. Faculty and Staff will receive a course link via email during the month of October.
If you're required in your role to take mandatory Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) training, you will receive links to additional courses to be completed in the SANS Security Awareness service.
EDUCAUSE & Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council are just two examples of organizations dedicated to building cybersecurity awareness in higher education. They provide security awareness training modules developed by college students, for college students. We encourage students to view and share these resources among the Bryant University student community. Visit their YouTube channel.
