Cyber Security Training
It is that time of year again! Cyber Security Training is available. 
Campus employees must register for one training (visual or text) on the 2023 Cybersecurity Awareness Training website.
The training is provided through Canvas and should take about 30 minutes to complete. To pass, you must correctly answer 12 of the 15 multiple choice questions. The training does not need to be completed in one sitting. You can return to the training to pick up where you left off and complete it at your convenience. You can retake the quiz until you pass.
