October is Cyber Security Awareness Month and one of the most important aspects to ensuring a safe working environment for all of us is to keep employees well informed and trained. The 2017 online security awareness training has been updated and can now be accessed through the EIS portal. All employees must complete this year’s security awareness training by Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017.
Full-time employees are required to complete training. New employees hired after April 1, 2017 and who completed the training during onboarding are not required to complete training. Although part-time employees are not required to complete the training, we encourage you to do so. Full-time employees who do not complete the training by Wednesday, Nov. 15 at 11:59 p.m., are at risk of losing access to computer resources.
Please login to the EIS portal, click on "Human Resources," then click on the link in the "Information Security Training" box as shown in steps 1 and 2 below:
The required training includes 10 short video courses, which are two- to five-minutes each, so that employees can easily complete the training during their work hours. Each video is followed by one assessment question.
Once all mandatory video courses are complete, employees can download and print a completion certificate. Employees will earn one Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credit for completing the training.
