Education and Awareness
To maintain our commitment to educate the University community on cybersecurity topics, the Division of Information Technology assigns the annual Cybersecurity Awareness Training to all employees.
Education and awareness is key to being able to defend against cyber attacks. As members of our FIU community, it is our responsibility to safeguard all information resources. The goal of the training is to help our University employees identify and prevent the loss of sensitive data and protect existing resources.
The annual training is part of our awareness efforts and requirements for regulations and compliance that the university must adhere to. You may notice that some topics may not directly apply to your job role. These are included in the training because as university employees, you may come in contact with such information, even if you are not part of a department that processes that type of data. These topics also satisfy the requirements and compliance regulations that FIU must follow.
Additional in-depth training on compliance topics are assigned to those whose job roles or departments are related to handling such sensitive data.
